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:

Bummer about having to replace the axle. I know it can be a pain to replace on our bikes. Easy does it on the new install, Hulk. Just torque it down to 110ft/lbs, not 1000. ;)
