Doing a low-buck flip-build of a '94 Hard Rock sport, Not the original wheelset; I forget where this one came from. Pretty low-end, appear to be 3-piece aluminum, 7 caged balls in each bearing. Just trying to get a fix on a brand name. Is this a KJ? KT? K7? Any clues welcomed.

That's the KT brand of Kun Teng, a Taiwanese bicycle component manufacturer that specializes in hubs and their peripherals. The company dates back to 1947 and is still in business.
