Looks a bit long, but that looks like a Raleigh hub (missing the oil port clip) and a Raleigh Pattern rim. If it works and the cones are ok use it. You could always find a shorter axle at a bike...

The Colt has 26 x 1-3/8" (590) wheels.

They're tapped. I measured again; I'm still in the 50mm territory, not 43.5.

I use a crimper to crimp the brass, then solder it. I may take up JB Weld, though.

They switched to half round notches some time in the late '70s. You can get a special spanner:

Those are from '83 or '84 and made for Schwinn by Giant, I believe. Not a Walmart bike. A Decent, lightweight lugged frame. I thought that was a decent Shimano hub, though.
