    I ordered a hardtail kit from Voodoo vintage
    Great hard tail tail kit. it goes together like lego,

    I need a new longer rear axle bolt.

    Does anyone know where I can get one

    It needs to be approximately 10.5" long
    and it needs to be 16.65mm shaft size. unnamed (2).jpg unnamed (3).jpg unnamed (2).jpg unnamed (3).jpg unnamed (2).jpg unnamed (3).jpg

    If the axle plate spacing is the same, wouldn't the stock axle work? Or are the axle plates thicker? Also, isn't the axle 17mm?

    Hi Travis
    yes the axle is 16.66 ish mm
    And no the new hard tail kit that I welded on makes it 1” wider, I’m going to need a 10.5” bolt with 1” of threade end, and New spacers to centre the wheel.
    I’m going to have to get my machine shop to build me a new axle bolt.
