Excellent seller and fast shipping!
Hobbycity.com has them as well (3 for $4.95), but shipping is expensive takes a little bit longer. Looks like they're sold out too.

Also excellent seller and fast shipping, but a hair more expensive.
I've also ordered a motor and esc combo from headsuprc which should come today.

How do you get the old shaft out? I can't get it to pull out.

First take the motor out of the motor mount by loosening the 2 set screws on the mount. Then there is a "C" washer retainer on the plane side of the shaft. Use something sharp to pop off the retainer, then you should be able to pull the bell housing off the rest of the motor. Then remove the 2 set screws on the prop side of the shaft. This should loosen the shaft from the bell housing. When putting the shaft in notice the flat area. One of the prop side set screws should hit the flat area to keep the shaft spinning with the bell housing. Also leave a little play between the bell housing and the rest of the motor otherwise the shaft could bind.
Hope this helps, I've replaced a few shafts already, but usually just bend the shaft back to as straight as possible instead of replacing. I also shorten the shaft with wire cutters to keep it from bending in the first place. I also use prop savers instead of bolting on a prop, it's a lot easier and they really do help lessen the shaft bending.
