Wheel axle search

On my road tandem KHS Roma, the frame back wheel spacing is 160mm. The back wheel has a solid axle that is a little to short and not anough thread for the bolts. Can you help me to find a store for a solid axle 195mm long minimm. I watched on the web already , place like ; The Third Hand or Tandem-East on-line without success.
Thank you Jean-François

Universal parts

Thank you for your amswer of KHS representative in Québec. From what I have seen in général they are not tandem specialist or tandem real interested. What I need is a store with big tandem parts choices, anywere in America. Jean-François

Three places to contact where you're most likely to get the answer / part you're looking for....

Harris Cyclery: http://www.sheldonbrown.com/harris/
You can also Email Sheldon at: CaptBike@SheldonBrown.com

Mt. Airy / College Park Cyclery: http://www.bike123.com
You can also Email Larry Black at: ABikie@aol.com

TandemsEast: http://www.tandemseast.com
You can also Email Mel Kornbluh at: TandemWiz@aol.com

Re: TandemsEast, not sure if you just checked their Web site or actually talked with Mel which is why I've included him again. It is rare that most shops can list everything they have in stock and/or can get their hands on. Moreover, they may have alternative suggestions on how to solve a problem with a different approach.
