Stripped axle and bolt

I removed my axle to install my new license plate and found out that I had entirely stripped the nut and partially stripped the axle thread. Must have over tightened it after I tightened my belt. Does anyone know of somewhere to get a replacement bolt and/or axle? I am going to bring the axle to a guy to re-cut the threads tomorrow and see if that holds. :frown:

Holy cow you must have put a hurt on that thing. Its a pretty sturdy nut and bolt. Maybe it was cross threaded?

In any case, I'm with 11. You might get away with rethreading it for a bit, but it wont be near as strong as it was. And its a doozy if it comes apart on the road.
