Need data for galactic rotation curves

    I'm looking for sources of data for galactic rotation curves but need not only the observed rotation curves but also the expected (Keplerian) curve data to load into a spreadsheet to experiment with. After extensive searching I found a few pockets of data for observed velocities but not for expected velocities. I tried going through the NED website but the format is over my head. (I'm just a hobbyist not a researcher). So if anyone can point me to a site that shows raw data for 1) radius, 2) observed velocity, 3) expected velocity for some popular local spiral galaxies it would be very much appreciated.
