Looks like a Mytek. I think they also made a tandem and some other variants.

Obviously a late 80s Klein Quantum. Hydraulic Mathauser brakes, aero spokes, lugged Klein fork made from Columbus tubing . Like this one, but it has drop ins bars.

1/10 scale die cast bicycle manufactured in China. I've seen these marketed under the MagiDeal brand. Typically they sell for $10-$15 US plus shipping.

I got it from the Flea market for 5 $.
I thought is cool. It was a black one too, but with a broken pedal and bars.
I don't want to sell it, I posted it just for fun.
thanks for all replies.

Note the cable routing

Even with these bikes,such cable routing works and looks better done that way!
