Axle + parts for Rol Volant front wheel?

I recently purchase a used Rol Volant from wheel on ebay to replace my taco'ed Bontrager Select. (Sadly, I don't have a great story, I just backed over it with my car.) The seller advertised it as not having a skewer so I was happy to find a skewer in the box but was dismayed to find the wheel lacking an axle. The Evo bearings are in there and the hub looks to be in great shape, it's just missing the axle, nuts and caps. Not exactly "ready to ride" as was advertised. THe hub appears to take a standard 9mm axle but I was hoping someone might the able to help me out with the exact width, nuts and caps I would need to make this wheel work. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Lukas

Haha. I feel stupid. The metal axle caps were just stuck on to the the plastic shipping caps. So it looked like there was no axle, but I was just confused.
Doh.
