M50 new rider

Hello,


New rider from Toronto ON.
Bought a bit of a lemon for my first used bike learning experience.
Lots of parts were not up to snuff as they say but at least it will be functioning great while I learn to ride.
There is one hang up at this point and that is to find a reasonably priced front wheel. The one on it is bent such that the shop won't safety it, and we both agree, I've got enough money in the bike already and a new from Suzuki wheel is pricey enough to wait while we look for a used one.
Other than that I think to bike has nice lines and will be rewarding to ride.

Greetings from Indiana.
There's quite a few used cycle parts companies ( junkyards) on fleabay. I've found a few things there. It may be worth a look.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

Found lots of rear wheels and no front. It's almost like people tend to hit things going fast front wheel first...
