Centurion Ironman frames?

I've read about who built frames for the Ironmen but it's confusing. Can someone tell me who built these 2 Ironman frames?
The red one is a 87 expert and the green one is a 87 Master

The frames were manufactured by Japanese company named Nomura.

Am guessing that is a mid 80's Dura Ace shift cable. They were somewhat stouter than the ones we see today. And more flexy-able.

Yes. They were real, and they were spectacular.

It's odd that they're different width. Maybe the FD cable was replaced more recently?
