Sprocket carrier, brake disc, etc, rarely replaced (hence good used readily available).
I think your best bet is to get the bare swingaram and source the hub/axle and associated bits by themselves.
That makes a lot of sense. I think that's what I'm going to go with. My only concern in that case is assembling the hub/axle improperly. I've been studying the blow up diagrams on MV's site. It looks fairly straight forward. I haven't looked yet but I'm sure torque specs are easy to find for it.

I guess at some level of laziness I wanted to find a swing arm already assembled so I could just bolt it on. Wish in one hand and... yea... you know the rest.

I appreciate everyone's assistance and input with this. Hopefully I can get this bike up and running again.
