The 125 is just under 4000 "in todays money".

950 is almost 30,000

Tricky for me to read on my computer - but there's an Aprilia for 25,000.

I'd enlarged - but at that point I needed to do a lot of scrolling as the screen is so small.  I'm on a chromebook which is brilliant for 99% "everyday" use, but that's an example of the 1%.  In the end I sized it to go up and down each column.
