Need to source a rear replacement axle for an old 531 MTB hub. The tried and true search methods are turning up empty. Thanks for the help...
Where have you looked? Called your LBS?

Is there something special about this axle? Common rear axles are 10mm diameter x 1.0 mm thread pitch and a 130mm OLD qr hub needs a 141 mm length and 146 mm length for 135 mm OLD hubs. What's different with the Mavic?
Not a 531 hub but I don't imagine it is much differenct in terms of the axle.
The parts next to the dropouts are campy and held in place with a C-clip.
All the vintage Mavic hubs are completely disassembleable. There were few differences between the road and mountain hubs (other than wider spacing).
You can source parts from any 501, 531, 577, 571, and to a lesser degree 500RD hubs. The 571/2 front hub is the same, the cassette rear hub is obviously different.
