Stuck Bolt Preventing Wheel Removal

Attempting a rear wheel removal for sprocket/chain swap, and I discovered that I've got boogered threads on this bolt attaching this bar to the rear brake assembly. (See pictures)

The nut is just left to spin in place. Any tips on getting this off so that I can remove the rear wheel? Best online retailer for replacing these bolts?

Thanks!

Since the threads on the bolt are already buggered, use a hacksaw or cutting wheel to cut it off. Then replace the bolt and nut. Ordering it online will be more expensive than a Honda stealership, if you have one. Shipping charges are why. The nut is just a regular 8mm nut, available at most hardware stores. Here's a link to the part from an online supplier. https://www.cheapcycleparts.com/oemp...-brake-stopper

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Thanks for the part link. I'll have to eat the shipping costs, rather than venture out to a dealership during the stay-at-home order in Ohio.

In that case, you may want to order the nut too.

I should have an 8mm nut lying around in the garage, so I should be all set. Thanks flite!
