CANNOT identify needed hardware on rear axle - help?

Honda diagrams of the trx200's frame and swingarm are of zero help so I hope I can glean some knowledge from y'all here.

I recently ordered another round of parts for my $20 scrapyard quad, this time a much needed new carb, and fuel petcock valve. However one thing is still in my way - NUTS AND BOLTS!

There is a flange nut and/or flange bolt on the rear swingarm/subframe that helps keep the two components properly mated and prevents flexing. (Near the rear sprocket)

The previous owner apparently removed or lost this hardware and improvised by jamming a single random bolt into the bolt hole and threaded two nuts onto it back to back.

This setup allows the frame/swingarm to flex/move, causing the chain to pop off every time you go over a bump or turn too tightly.

Can anyone help me identify this hardware in terms of which nuts and bolts are needed, and where they can be acquired? I apologise for my ignorance, this is my first time working on one of these little hondas, and my head is spinning!

could the hardware you looking for be in this pic ------ are you close to New Orleans , I'd sell you the entire rear end of a 1986 200 , the swing arm, axle , carrier , sprocket , hubs , etc , for $100

bolt 8 and nut 9 attach the swing arm to the frame
if the bolt is wiggling in the hole , then it might be a little late to get the right bolt , the hole might already be egged out , the bolt would be metric to start with , no telling whats in there now , just go to the hardware store and get a bolt , you might have to go to a bigger size now if it was run long with the wrong bolt in it
