Sure this may well have been covered previously in another thread but I wonde rif anyone can give me a steer on this.

i've got an old steel frame - 501 tubing - that I was thinking about converting to fixed/ ss.
The rear dropouts are spaced for 7 speed - shows how old it is - which I reckon is 127mm compared to the 130 which covers 8 speed upwards.

Does anyone know if you can get a single/ fixed hub or wheel that'll fit that spacing without getting the frame reset or if I need the frame re-don
