Need Yamaha DX-7 keys. Best source?

Hey, would anyone happen to know of a good source for DX-7 keys? There are some on eBay but all seem kind of sketchy in one way or another. Thanks in advance!

I have nearly 2 sets of keys from the dx7 II series. I am not sure if they are compatible. I would prefer trades or selling them by the octave.

I need jupiter 6 volume knob, yamaha rx5 parts, sh-101 bender, tubes, midi, 1/4 and 1/8 in patch cables and that box of junk in your closet.

Rhino - thanks so much. Just got in touch to see if maybe he can help me out. Really appreciate it though.

FH - only because most don't offer direct buying/bidding. Can only purchase through calling someone's cell phone/e-mailing etc. Would rather just purchase outright.

JMassie - I am quite sure that all DX-7 model keys are compatible. So that would be amazing. Can't really offer anything to trade at the moment, but would be more than happy to buy by the octave. I'll look out for the elusive junk box you speak of, though!

some people don't put a whole lot of effort into their web design, they just want to get the point across. I got a key from him (because the price was so stinking cheap i could afford the risk) and it arrived promptly, in good condition, and was packaged very well.

which reminds me I need to grab some an1x keys so thanks for the link.
