longus pl1 tange prestige frame full xtr -- Who made it?

Hello,
I have just seen a Tange prestige frame with ritchey dropouts. The frame is equipped with xtr m 900 group in good condition.
The frame is a LONGUS PL1. I have googled for ages and have not found anything on the frame builder.
Does anyone know who built the frame? It says made in Japan.
p.s. Should I be in the classic and vintage forum?

Regards, elad

It's a very good looking bike. Classic and Vintage might be more helpful but there are some old people around here who still know what they're talking about too. They're all still faster than I am, at least.

they were very probably made by toyo in japan. The "longus" brand was the label of "Paul Lange", a german shimano importer ...very close design to the "bike-tech" bikes from Markus Storck which were made by toyo/japan.
