Just bought a set of Supra RC58 wheels (made by Sensa in Holland i believe) and need to identify the rear hub to see if i can convert it to 11 speed Shimano. Other alternative will be to try and match the dimensions and replace the hub reusing the old spokes.

Isn't that already campag compatible? Looks like a couple of aftermarket campags ones i've seen.

If it is, just stick a campag 11 cassette on and use that.

It is a campag freehub. Do you run a campy chain as well or does the shimano chain work fine? It originally had a Shimano freehub, but the previous owner changed it so i have both.

Shouldn't make much difference whether you run campag or shimano chains as sprocket thicknesses and spacings are pretty much indistinguishable.
Though i think the campag chain is fractionally narrower for some reason.

And i think it's an older novatec hub as well.

These generic hubs which could be either Campy or Shimano, have the dimensions to take a Shimano 11-spd freehub. That freehub looks almost new, so as the others said, the simplest thing is to use a Campy cassette. Any 11-spd chain will work. Not cheap though, so you'll have to crunch the numbers on the cost of the swap to see if it makes sense to you.

One.

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...

I also used shimano chains on a 11sp campy groupset, no problem at all.
