Looking for a used BMW X-Country

In DC. Tried the usual suspects(craigslist, ebay, Bob's) with no luck. Anyone holding and looking to sell? Got a friend with one tucked in their basement?

DC - wire wheel relacing/truing?

Got a W650 with a bent front rim (spokes seem to be straight) . Have a OEM front rim and set of new tires/tubes on the way. Any idea of a local place that can relace/true and mount the tires?

I didn't replace the jets, just cleaned. May give replacement a shot. The diaphrams looked fine, and the slides moved nicely through the range of travel.

Any ideas on Keihin parts sources?...
