If that's your plan, you have the skill, and tools, why not source an axle, some steel, and build your own from scratch?
Another option would be Craigslist. I was on yesterday and saw a few in your area in the 500-1k range that would fit the bill. I'd throw a new set of bearings in em' and some bearing buddies on, but you'll still be less than $1500.
