Nexus 8 is spaced at 132.5, the Special Ed is 120mm. If you can locate and older Shimano, Sram or Archer hub, they might have a suitable spacing.
As other have pointed out, the San Jose is a great candidate. I had it set up on a Surly 1x1 for a period of time. The IRO Rob Roy and Surly Cross-Check have also been used.
This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
