Voni and I are on the road, in Montana, and I put a huge bend in my front wheel. Didn't lose air and didn't go down but the wheel looks to be beyond banging on. We are holed up in a motel at Marion, MT just west of Kalispell. I don't think the bike is safe to ride unless the wheel can be straightened up some at least.
Bike: 2001 F650 Dakar - 21" front wheel
So I want to buy a wheel if anybody has one for sale, or if anybody can provide any help in finding one.
I have checked the F650 ads, IBMWR ads, and MOA ads.
I have also checked on-line at Beemer Boneyard, Repsychle, and Engeland Moto - no luck.
I did find a maybe on a 19" GS wheel - does anybody know if that will bolt on without serious modifications needed.
If anybody has a Dakar laid up and can lend/rent me a wheel for a while - that too??
If anybody has ideas, or can call a dealer to see if they have a wheel I would appreciate it. I need all the help I can get.
If anybody gets a line on a wheel or can otherwise help the best contact is to email me at:
Cell phone (515) 423-7283 works but not too well maybe.
Thanks for any help and thanks for listening.
