KHS Bicycles, Inc., model TC-150 (Comfort series). Bought it new in 2012 and have 15,700 miles on it and counting (about 11 miles per good weather day).
Bought it before I really knew about bikes after my Giant Farrago gave up the ghost.

Vaguely remember the name but never had a pair.

Not exactly obscure (more like OG), but Christophe toe straps and Spenco gloves.

Morgul-Bismark

Anybody like Morgul-Bismark?


By-the-way.., would you like a "quality bicycle"? Here's one from Inline:

All in a convenient 3" box.

I would say Tranz X MTB components , Sachs transmisison before buying purchased by SRAM, Rigida (average quality and heavy rims), Air B (french made anti puncture tubes that were made between 1991-1996), Ambrosio (high end italian rims but not commonly seen on the market), Fir (high end italian rims but not commonly seen on the market), Gipiemme (high end italian wheels that were made in the 90's-00's , still made but confidential production (Gipiemme wheels), Cilo (defunct swiss brand), Icon (Trek subrand of cabon forks, stems, seat post, and bars) ,eolic wheels (high end made italian wheels used by pantani back then), Iscaselle, Wheeler (once a popular MTB company rarely seen nowadays), Cycles Jean Marie Pilorget (well known french framebuilder that could weld titanium, aluminium and steel and made top of the range frames), Profica (high end french frame builder until the year 2000 which was as reknown as Cyfac bought by La Compagnie du Vélo and no more making any frames)

Some old school BMX Stuff

Z-Rims, made out of Zytel. I was suckered into buying these POS's.


And my old pride and joy - it was stolen, and I know who did it!! Selling for upwards of 5k now.
Skyway TA - BMX awesomeness.

Dare I mention my Centurion? Made by CInelli of course...

The 1983 Centurion CInelli/Project frame, made in the Cinelli supervised Chiricao shop near Milan.
From the 1983 BIkeology catalog
