Sugino 75s will work with the std UN52/72 cheap Shimano BBs. Most of the bikes that come with them Rush, KHS all use (or used to) Shimano BBs and are generally problem free. AS noted there is a small difference in taper but I think you really have to abuse the arms to have problems.
They're great cranks and even at 90 USD, you've still got good value-for-money. Price new, as someone mentioned is around 150 bucks for just the arms, 200 bucks with a ring. Second hand they go for all kinds of weird prices, from 30 bucks up, but more typically around 100 USD for a set. If they're lightly used then you didn't really 'overpay'.
From your LBS they can run a lot more.
They're great stiff cranks, I love mine. Pretty much have zero flex.
