[but I did have a good laugh at the (ahem...) $2,700 price tag and "Do you know a bike like that only weighs 7lbs!"]

May indicate seller knew the buyer and saw him coming?

Was my favorite show at the time, for sure.
I posted these before: 1980 recommended prices, but for 1981 models:

Thanks for the price list. Hard to come by those. I'd been thinking many people here don't believe it when I've mentioned how much these machines cost BITD.

$2395
+ Jersey, helmet, shoes, shorts & tax probably comes out to around 2700 for a Super Corsa. Obviously, the producers of the show saved money and went for a lookalike at a much lower cost.

That was my first thought. Props to him if he can ride 112 in those shorts then be up for a marathon run.

The Superleggera Super Corsa's also had the brake cable braze-on's painted black around this time.
