Is it possible to Convert Campy freehubs to Shimano freehubs?

Im thinking of purchasing some wheel if this is possible.

More information please - ie. are they actual Campagnolo wheels or third-party wheels with Campagnolo hubs or third-party wheels with Campag-compatible hubs?
It is certainly possible, but not for all wheels.

You should also search for the thread about using SRAM components as a link between the two component families.

I know it's possible for Campy, Fulcrum, Mavic, Zipp wheels as a minimum. Usually you just need to buy a compatible freehub body.

But back to the question... Are you mad? No sane person would convert from Campy to Shimano? :lol:

The shimano wheels went in a flash :( ... I was just wondering if it was an easy process and there are major difference in the actual hub not just the freewheel?

Same question goes for me. I have found some American Classic 420 for a goos price but they have a campy freewheel.

Is it a straightforward/expensive swap?
Felt f5c - plus dura ace
Raceline Giro - on the trainer and in the wet
Geoff Scott 80s - Stripped and fixed
1993 CroMo mountain bike - kids seats front and back
