​​​oneclick , thanks again for your comment! Your mention of 10x26 did the trick. Confusing (10mm with 26 TPI), but at least I understand now. Thanks again!

Thanks for your response. I'm gonna have to recheck because all three axles are 26 TPI. Therefore, they cannot be M9 and M10.

The 8.8mm measurement may be a M9. And the 9.8mm measurement may be a M10.

The tape (or strap?) on the top tube is to prevent damage from the handlebars swaying side-to-side. I noticed that a lot of Keirin bikes have that tape.

Has anyone heard of New Hudson bikes before? Tri-velox derailleur? 1930's. Looks cool.
