At least from velobase, these were only in ISO sizing, which would be a 26.4mm crown race. JIS is 27mm.

I wouldn't think so if you didn't ride on it when it was flat. Walking the bike with a flat tire shouldn't hurt the tire. I've done it a number of times and never had tire problems with it after.

Not sure on the threading, but agree, this is the top cup or race, not the crown race. Standards were 30.2mm (for ISO) and 30mm (for JIS). I wonder if a 30.2mm race would fit the frame? And the lower?

Standard non-Campy axles should be 10mm x 1.0, which would be equivalent to 25.4TPI. A 6 speed Campy Record hub normally takes a 134mm axle (10mm x 26TPI). I doubt that the Sunshine hub is threaded...

Yes, Regina Oro according to the catalog. I don't think the Ultra stuff was available that early. Raleigh was the first big manufacturer to go 6 speed in 1973, Many didn't start until the late '70s.

Curious. Raleigh Pros were std. 6 speed from at least 1973 (whatever mark they were then). Why do you need 120mm when the frame should be 126?
