For the record the bearings are double row roller bearing and not tapered. I think Erik’s solution sounds straightforward, ie. using a slightly narrower bearing but with same id/od and a spacer. As the bike is not heavy or particularly fast i’m assuming the slightly reduced load carrying capability of the narrower bearing will not be too much of a problem (it was probably over engineered in 1926 anyway ?).

Cheers,
