I don't specifically have any recipes but I can give a few pointers 
on what to look for.

100% rye bread has no gluten, it relies on various starch complexes 
for its structure and not protein. This results in a soft dough that 
produces a loaf that has a lot softer texture than a wheat bread.

If your proportions of rye and wheat flour are somewhere around 1 to 
1, the dough should work fine in your bread machine.

Also, I would highly recommend perusing a copy of the Bread Bible by 
Beth Hensperger (ISBN 9780811845267)

That book has a number of recipes adapted to the bread machine, I'm 
not sure (without looking at it) if it has eomething specifically 
like you are looking for but I seem to recall something similar. You 
could also simply do some experiments, start with a good wheat based 
bread and substitute rye flour in varying proportions to see what you get.
