Go to a machineshop and get one custom made?

I had a couple track axles made up a while back. Still going strong!

If you can't find someone to make you an axle, another possible option is a Wheels Manufacturing part no:Axle-34 9.5*180mm 24 tpi. Though it will need to be shortened slightly and unlike a custom axle the bearings will be sitting on threads unless you fill these sections of the thread.

I'd bought a couple of the wheels manufacturing axles before going down the custom path which as unused could happily sell to you. Otherwise can measure my spare custom axle so you have the necessary dimensions?

Hi Dalai47 , Do you have any of the details of your machined axle ? like what you took in to get it made? I have a 950 disc and it has no internals in it so I need to find new stuff or get it made...

Hi Dalai47,

Somehow I missed your response back in June

Would be interested in your track axle dimensions or buying an axle off you.

mr_stephen_lane are you in Sydney?

Custom axle is 158mm long threaded 44mm one side and 33mm the other. Threads are 24 tpi.

Although probably unnecessary I had a sleave cut to sit on the axle inside the disc to fit the internal space between the bearings. Unfortunately I didn't get a spare cut so can't provide the exact dimensions of this.

Bearings are easy to come by. Any R6 3/8" x 7/8" x 9/32" inch will fit. You can decide if ceramic is worth the trouble.

Top custom axle.

Thanks dalai,

Probably a dumb question, but what is the diameter of the axle?

Second axle is the Wheels Manufacturing part no:Axle-34 9.5*180mm 24 tpi. Also the same diameter - thinking it must just be due to the angle of the photo that it looks smaller.
