It looks pretty clean but I don't think any of the XR's ever ran brakeless. Unless that was a brake sprocket combo, I couldn't tell. By 1980 they were running disc brakes anyway. So, IMHO it's way overpriced for an incorrect period bike. But, it only takes one...

The XR750 from 72-80 came always w/o brakes from the factory, as on dirt track races brakes were not allowed. Only for TT-Races or street use brakes were added from the owner. This bike looks 100% correct.

The AMA first began testing brakes on flat track at Ascot Park in 1963. The AMA rule book oficially allowed brakes in 1969. By 1972, everybody was running brakes.
In 1977, brakes are required in the AMA rulebook.

Ok, thanks for this info, I am not a racing expert. But I know other XR750 from 1980 which came also without brakes from the factory. But I still believe the brakes were added by dealers or buyers. And all brakes I ever saw where different...

Another example for a bone stock zero miles XR750 from 1980:
