BMX Hubs for SS 70's road bike?

I want to put bmx flip flop hubs on a wheelset for a 70's road bike. I'm concerned about the spacing however...

I was told that the frame was probably intended for 5sp freewheel and that the spacing is approx 120mm. -> Would a bmx hub fit that spacing?

Rear BMX hubs should be 110mm spacing, meaning you can probably add some spacers to get 120 and not have to replace the axle. Otherwise, a new axle should be around $10 - Sheldon Brown could give you the details, his site is an excellent resource for this type of conversion.
