McMaster Carr has grade 8 allthread for pennies per foot. No a good idea for motorized bikes though. It's far more brittle than grade 5 and when this stuff snaps off you got REAL problems.
IMO the stock chinese hardware is best and most problems are caused by noobs not knowing when to stop torquing. A stubby ratchet handle is your friend.
