Wheel dish and freehub replacement

I'm updating and '89 Bridgestone RB-2 by cold-setting the stays to 130mm spacing and putting an 8-speed freehub body on the original 126-spaced rear hub. If I replace the original axle with the axle from a 130mm hub, will I still need to re-dish the wheel?

I'd build it up and see how it turns out. You have a little leeway on the older setups with respect to washer placement and room for the chain in the small cog. You'll be able to re-dish very quickly anyway if you have to -- very easy job.

Absolutely! The 4mm that you're adding is all on the drive side.

Right. Also, you do not need to replace the axle, the original 137 mm axle is plenty long enough for use with 130 mm spacing. Just move the right cone over so the protrusion is reasonably even on both sides.
