Re: Close Encounter with Metal Object
Did the Ebay site say how many miles on the bike it came from? Stick your finger in the bearings, give them a spin, no roughness? Feel snug, good. Look at the seals, are they relatively sharp, no missing edges, good.
You could have that old wheel repaired, does not look too bad. Plenty of shops that specialize in that. A spare on the garage wall.

I change your tires $50, you buy them on the web.
