Spoked wheel repair and trueing

Guys, my motorcycle has developed a nasty vibration at the handlebars and I discovered that both my front and rear rims are slightly bent (I assume from landing on large rocks, etc). Is there any spoked wheel repair shop in a Texas (preferably near Dallas) that anyone can recommend who could straighten the rim (bend looks to be less than 1/4 inch and re true both wheels? I was looking at buying a set of aftermarket rims, but at $500+ I can't justify the cost!! The bike is a 2007 crf450x.

Thanks Gary

Re: Spoked wheel repair and trueing

Sorry Budzrex, but who is Greg? Does he work at JDCPMXWHEELS? Or is it someone else? On a separate note, how are you? It's been a very long time since we last saw each other!! Hope all is well.

Gary

Re: Spoked wheel repair and trueing

I thought the vibration at the bar was a design feature.
ON my HUsaberg, if I didn't have that feature built in from the factory,
I'd doze off and kill myself while droning down the slab...
