Hi Neil...the 94 mm front was standard on vintage CCM fixed-road/track bikes. The rear track ends are 120 mm. These bikes are british standard in many respects. These frames date from 1930 to 1950.

Many hubs were made to accommodate these dimensions. BH (amongst others) made a large range of widths.
