95mm Hub on a 110 Fork?

Hi all, I managed to score a '79 Fuji Royale and I'm planning to use a shimano dynamo hub for my front wheelset.
However, the hubs measure 95mm, and the spacing on my front fork is around 100-110mm. I would like to use the dynamo hubs but I'm worried about the spacing of the fork and what that means for my safety. Would it still be possible to have it work? Thanks in advance

You could put in spacers/washers.

Big diff between 100 and 110mm spacing on that fork! Standard is 100, so if it’s wider, you need to cold set it back. Shouldn’t have any issue clamping down on a 95mm axle or just add 2mm spacers on each side.

Do other wheels center in the fork when clamped? If so I would grab the forktips one in each palm lock my fingers together and pray to lord, squeezing my hands together. I did just that on a Centurion to fit a Maillard hubset wheels.

Agreed. The Shimano dynamo hub should be 100mm, as should the forks.

The only narrower dynamo hub I know of is the Sturmey-Archer Dynohub, and the only forks I know of at 110mm are Ofo and LimeBikes which use an odd model of Chinese 6V dynamo that requires the wider spacing.
