I have one of these little Rider's Aids,.

The Super Record gruppo for example, in today's money, adjusted for inflation would be best part of £1500.

The SR gear ensemble, £75 in '81, would be £220 in today's money - this was expensive kit BITD.

Yep, those Holdsworth prices explain why we used to buy Campag from the likes of Whiskers, Weilersport and Dauphin Sport.

Yep, those are the "full" retail prices, discount sellers had lower prices.

And Campagnolo prices were significantly higher than the rest.
