    Default Rear Axle suggestions

    Building a bike from the frame up and just curious about rear axles. Does everyone just run the cheapest ones on J&P Cycles or is there a brand everyone prefers? Need to get one ordered so I can start mock up. Thanks!

    If Drag Specialties lists one for your application, even though their axles are made in Taiwan, the rear axles at least are made of chromoly and seem to hold up well.
    Used HD stocker is also a good choice.

    I don't care for cheap parts, They are nothing but problems in the end....... Buy a vintage part and it will fit and last as long as the bike does..... That goes for all parts on a bike.....

    Good advice, especially these days.
