I can probably help you with an axle. Is the front hub marked? Or perhaps there is a number on the center part of the axle? Knowing the year may also give me a clue. The serial number is most likely stamped on the left rear drop out just above the axle.

I have an old vintage "Tornado" bicycle that I bought in Europe in the late 60's. It was originally a four speed and came with old campy hubs. Great riding touring style frame. Anyone have any info on the bike? Will sell at some point but just looking for info right now. Thanx! I will try to add a photo this afternoon.
