Can't find any links. Is Bud Bartos still making Retro front axles? 

 

If not, what is your go-to choice?

Tried to order some recently from PCH but was told that they're no longer being produced. I occasionally see them for sale on eBay so they're still available to some degree. 
 
Mid-America has their own brand of Retro axles in all three sizes. I bought one to try out but haven't used it yet. The Mid-America axles use a larger nut (4.5M) with different threading than the Bartos, so that's something to be aware of.

JB Axles work well for the job.

Obsessed is the word the lazy use to describe the dedicated.
