14:7 track hub

I have a Campagnolo Zonda G3 wheelset sitting gathering dust, as the rear hub is buggered... I'd hate to throw the nice rims out, though, so I was wondering if there is a company making 14:7h track hubs that I could use to rebuild the wheel in FG configuration.

Perhaps I could just go ahead and use a 28 hole hub, but I'd prefer to use a more elegant solution.

Oh, and anyone who tried a build like this?

I'd like to know this, too. I'm using a G3 Vento on the front and have the rear hanging in my shop. I'd like to pair it up on my FG but doubt I can find a hub.

This guy does custom work, you may be able to get him to do the drilling you want.

Thanks, that looks like the ticket. And he's in Europe too, which is a big plus to me.

i think the 28h hub would be the elegant solution. definitely worth commenting on if someone were to notice.

Phil Wood also. https://www.philwood.com/products/hubspgs/mischubs.php

I've seen custom drilled Miche hubs from the factory.

Also seen a Miche 28H hub with the NDS flange machined down to low flange specs and re-drilled to 7 hole. Piccolo/Grande 2to1

Dumb question :
Isn't the whole point of 14:7 lacing to achieve equal spoken tension on heavily dished cassette hubs? Wouldn't 14:7 on a track hub with a center dished rim end up with high tension on the 7 side?

Not all track hubs are zero dish.
