Looking to repair or replace my front wheel

Bent my wheel this weekend in Mexico. I called the dealer and they want $600 for a replacement. I'm looking to have it repaired or buy a used one. Anyone have a used rim for sale?

Is it just a slight bend on the rim? or did you really destroy it? If there is a slight bend and the tire isn't leaking, just ride it, will be fine. My rear has had a slight bend on one side for years.
