Markup is standard retail, $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$, normal head bump for the masses.

Killer price.

Pretty sure this has been asked many times before but what's the likelihood of getting hit with a customs bill upon receipt?

How much do you think it would cost to get a shop to install everything? I'm guessing close to 2 bills, if not more.

Does the group come complete with cables and housing?

none, in my experience, it's is all taken care of as part of deal.... essentially to the end user no different than buying from a US based online dealier

Mine came with cable and housing. That has been my experience with new Shimano gear.

Should be no more than $200, that is the flat rate for a complete overhaul I got for stripping and reassembling a 75 Paramount which would be a lot more work being oldschool cup and cone.

Dang, that's a great deal for such immense capability. No frame to put it on, and that's ok with me. More for other people to have a "great deal."

Generally, packages up to $800 in declared value are not taxed. This page offers more info: https://www.cbp.gov/trade/basic-impo...rnet-purchases.
