Here's my NOS 1997 Rhygin Metax CX. I have all the parts, but have been just too busy (i.e. lazy) to complete it. The crankset, bottom bracket, cassette and rear derailleur (all NOS) are all period correct so I'm excited to get them installed. I'm not all that concerned about the period correctness in general, as it's a gorgeous bike nonetheless.
