Any bike shop should have these in stock. If you're pinching pennies, find a bike co-op that sells used parts- Shimano has always used 10x1mm thread on their rear axles. You can always buy as axle...

Coming in late, but large flange hubs were fading in the early '80's. Shimano catalogs showed a large-flange cassette hub in 1982 but I think I've seen one example in person.

Here's what happens when you let a rim go too long. I barely felt a bump when I started the ride- 15 miles later... KABOOM. The rim let go with a louder bang than I'd ever heard. Fortunately I wasn't...

Yes, the Schwinn size was 20 x 1 3/4" while BMX-ish tires are 20 x 1.75"... and they don't interchange. Bicycle tire sizes are weird.
