Colnago Master X-light 2008 : $2000 With Campy Super-Record-11 : $5800 : 17.68 lbs Deflated to 1974 prices : $1358 : 21.00 lbs ?

What did a Colnago Super with full Super-Record grouppo cost back in 1974/75 ?? I think part of the reason for the CR list is that bicycle prices for today have spiraled out of control.

What do you think ?
