I have a hawthorne 3 speed (hub is dated 1963)that is very narrow also. The Sturmey Archer 32 hole hub is standard and fits. Sutherlands gives OLD for front forks as many.

I have an early 60's french racing bike with 86 mm wide fork. Is this a damaged fork or was this once a standard? I got this bike with a front wheel installed which I misplaced but Campy hubs are too wide to fit. I t does not look damaged and It has been hanging since I bought it 3 years ago.
