Look on Ebay, I just saw a couple of used front wheels for 1800s, $250 and up. Brand new for about $600!
Good luck!

Insurance claim for a new or used is an option. A buddy of mine bent his front rim after hitting a rock and got front and rear new tires out of insurance at the same time.
Another option is to bend it back if it's not cracked.
It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

Found a rim! One of the guys on another forum I'm also on had one. We came to a very agreeable deal and it is on it's way.

Thanks to all for your help and suggestions.
