I bent axles by not using a tug/axle stay.
After bendind two axles and frying two chains i learned up really quick.
I got a piece of 1/8 inch flat stock steel and placed my rear wheel, with new axle, then tightened new chain to my desired tension and marked the flat stock steel.
I then cut two holes, one for the axle and one for the nut and bolt to secure the axle stay/tug.

It wasn't hard but you'll have to be fairly precise on the smaller hole connecting to frame.

Even if you do buy another frame, be sure to buy or fabricate an axle tug/stay so you do not run into this problem again.

Ride Safe!

not really understanding what you're saying here

looks like a hub adapter, so if that isn't dead tight, it will spin and rip spokes - I'd tighten it or replace with the stronger rag joint

OTOH, bent axle is usually chain climbing sprocket and pulling wheel forward - just a matter of having tensioner feed chain truly straight onto rear sprocket

these problems are fixable, and if you look around the forum, you'll see that everyone here has fixed them

look carefully at what you have there and ask specific questions about how to make what you have work

that pic isn't same as in first post - why the big sprocket if you are using some kind of little one for motor chain?

Oh, OK, really hard to work from just a pic - looks like no hub adapter either, so is sprocket just bolted to disk brake holes? If so, then longer bolts with some washers to put under sprocket might help in getting it aligned better, but than I'm not sure what it was that broke the other spokes, maybe chain came off and got inside there?
