The axle you can make by cutting down a standard axle :wink:
Its about 133mm finished length :? i'd have to check,just to be exact. :?

Only problem you have is locating a 4mm end spacer though i think it would be a relatively easy job to cut a normal one down [or something like that]

This is mine-

THe Hope effort looks complicated but it's a piece of cake to fit, it really is!
I think the spacer is the same as the front, disc side jobby off normal Hope hubs, fatso, sus etc...
