Is it the axle in the hub or a skewer (quick release) that is broken? If it is the skewer, those can be replaced. If it is the hub (with a through-axle), then you would do best to buy a new wheel.

Broken rear axle

If you have the right spanner wrenches and a freewheel removal tool and chain whip you can repair it yourself, but if you had those tools then you probably wouldn't have posted here. So your best bet is to take it to the local bike shop to have the hub overhauled. There are many different size axles and they will need to see it and make sure to order the right length and size, plus you will probably need new bearings. You are looking at about $10-20 in parts and about $10-20 in labor. Most bike shops can sell you a complete new wheel (minus the tire, tube, rimstrip, and rear cogs) for about $40 and up that would be in the Sorrento quality range. Usually we see broken rear axles when the bike has been jumped and if the force was great enough to break a hard steel axle, it probably flattened a portion of the soft aluminum rim too (not always, but I'm just saying what typically happens) so perhaps just buying a new rear wheel is the most cost effective fix and quickest too. If the LBS has the wheel you need in stock they can swap it out in a matter of minutes versus waiting a week or more for parts to come in from a supplier and the hour plus it would take in labor to rebuild the hub.

I have some space between the rear axle and the bearing hub on my Raleigh M40. Can you tell me if you have both an axle and the the bearings hubs for each side?

We don't supply parts. Advice. Take the wheel to a bicycle shop for an assessment as the parts are not universal among the different hub makers.

How do I get a Raleigh Rapide (circa early 1980's) to hook up to this trainer? The rear wheel axle does not have a quick disconnect and I can't remove the axle to replace with the supplied skewer

A QR rear axle CAN be retro-fitted to your wheel by a bike shop and it would make wheel removal for repair much easier. If you DO go this route make sure to get an old-school rounded QR where the handle is not overlapping the end of the axle.

Like this:

Just the same, won't the trainer grip the (assumed) nuts holding your wheel? It might mar the insides but I would think it would hold.

I just looked at the hardware on my old-school trainer and I think it would accomodate a 9/16" or 5/8" nut. I don't own any standard wheels to check it with.

How to line-up rear wheel on a 2005 harley davidson road king its rubbing the finder

The belt adjusting screws are on the ends of the swing arm arms if I'm not mistaken. To insure the rear wheel is aligned inside the swingarm, these two bolts must be adjusted to equal lengths.

Start by loosening the rear axle and the adjusters and moving the rear wheel forwards. Now, measure the bolts and set them to the same length. Slowly start to pull the rear wheel back by turning the nuts on the adjusters equal amounts on each bolt. Once you get the belt tension correct the bolts should be the same length.

Some swing arms have a "punch mark" on the outside of the swingarm about 6-8" in front of the axle. A Dyna Wide Glide has them. If your bike does not have exposed bolts that you can measure, look for these. Measure the distance from this "punch mark" to the center of the axle. If must be the same on both sides of the bike.

Good Luck

The left rear wheel is towed out

The car as it is would not be safe, even if you find a temporary adjustment for the axle, that had probably been deformed or broken by the shock.
In your situation you need to have the car inspected by a qualified mechanic, and the axle eventually replaced.
