Hello,

I looked at this a while ago and it is much more difficult to compare the worth of an old bike with the prices today.

One should compare the average income and the costs of live and the costs of work and…

For example the cost of one KWH electrical energy was equal to the salary for an hour of a craftsmen in Germany in 1929. Today it is a fracture of this.

This may help:
