SGI Octane?

Anyone got a working SGI Octane with BNC/RGB Video Out ? 

For Borrowing? For Rent? For Sale?

I got a strange request from a friend I need to do some preliminary R&D with one.. 

Apparently, these do video out at 72.5khz, with Sync on green, which is odd and that part of the nut I need to crack.
