With those,rear tyres, it's a drag mobility scooter:laugh:

Other than speaking either with an engineering company to fabricate a new shaft.

Have you tried using your photo to search the image on Google. I've been able in the recent past, to identify parts from searching the photo I took of it. Give it a go:okay:

It looks like the bearing had seized and heated up the shaft just before the splines creating a weakness. I've not seen anything like that on Cycle Chat before. That motor is huge as well. If i had to guess, i would say it's come from the land of China and if that's the case, you wont get parts anyway.

Final bit of digging on the internet for you tonight has yielded these Trike Axles

If you look at the related items you may end up finding an exact replacement axle. Sadly, you almost never get individual parts such as drive/half shafts for such items from China as they like to ship out entire assemblies due to manufacturing constraints and how cheaply they throw these things together.

Looks like my hunch is correct Chinese Trike
I want one.

As said, typical Chinese (probably) junk, which is not to say it can't be made to function, and I rather admire anyone who wants to get something unusual functioning again.

I also doubt any spares will be available, so you are probably stuck with local fabrication.

It's got plenty of volts and watts, so may go quite well, albeit for not many miles on a charge.

No pedals or any pretence to them which puts it firmly in electric motorcycle territory.

Thus it will need registration and the driver will need insurance and a helmet.

Riding it illegally is an option if that's your bag, but it is so unusual and so obviously a motortrike I think it's inevitable you will get nicked sooner rather than later.
 
I'm no help for finding the part, but before I went to any great effort to find it, I'd want to investigate what had caused it to bend like that in the first place in case it needs additional modification to reduce the chances of it happening again.
