Just saying, back in the late 80s/early 90's, such a kit with maple and birch shells would have cost closer to $2k.

The fact that they can spit it out for $829 is amazing (granted, it's all made in China).

In 1993, if you only had $829 to spend on a shall pack, you were getting a kit made of undisclosed wood with no suspension mounts, and no one talked about the bearing edge.
