I think it is standard enough to work on Campy, Sugino etc. In the old days Shimano had a shallower taper as I recollect.

If you start swapping spindles it depends on where the cranks end up seating on the tapers. Based on a Stronglight axle chart, I would say 120mm with the right side 4mm longer than the left.
