spacers for rear wheel

by roughly how much does the chain need to be moved over?

Use not spacered-cogs; chainrings should move. If you'rs is on outside spider, move it onto the inside of the chainring spider. That way chain will go straight to cog, not curve.

Mikeee, try taking it to the bike shop, say you want a shorter bottom bracket and they should be able to figure out what type and size to get.

looks like a conversion, is it perhaps an old 12 speed, and spaced 126mm in the back?

it looks like you have a fat amount of spacers on the drive side between the locknut and the cone, looks like you could pull some off the drive side and put them on the non drive side, effectively moving your cog or freewheel more to the outside. can't tell for sure though.

I needed to space my 120 spaced hub to 126 for my conversion. threw three washers (I believe M9 but I can't remember, maybe M10. it is a 10mm axle) on the non drive side and it fixed my chainline to use the outside portion of the spider for my road double.
