WTB: Stock Pristine Wheeels for 07 919

Hey. Was cleaning the 919 tonight and to my horrors discovered BOTH rims are damaged. The front is really bad. The back is barely dinged.

So I really need the front bad. I would like to replace both.

I know what happened. I hit a major pothole that was hidden by a larger puddle. BAM! Weird thing is bike rides and handles perfect.

Shoot me a PM if you have wheels.

Got a price on fixing my dented rims today. I would have to leave the wheels for about 2 weeks and pay $150/wheel.

I thought I could probably find used wheels for that kind of $$. Who's got some wheels they don't need?

I've seen them cheaper on E-bay while dream-surfing from my side of the world. Though you never really know what you are buying until it arrives.

You should get hold of OCC and have them spin up some nice billet alloy ones with the spokes shaped like naked pole-dancers.

I'll be here all evening offering advice.......

I did the same on my front wheel. I could find one for about $150 at the time but it is taking a chance. I figured I could buy a used rim but there is no guarantee with it. I could have got one and still had to get it fixed. With mine I knew it would be 100% once I got it back. I have been using the fixed one for about 3 years now. If done right it's like having a brand new wheel.

If I didn't have to give up my bike for 2 weeks, I would definitely just get mine repaired. I may see if there are other shops around here that could do it faster.
