Took apart a Shimano 105 rear hub last night to find it has narrower flats on the cones and locknuts. This seems like a cheap and easy alternative to finding a Dura-Ace 110 kit. The locknuts lack a round section and the flats on the cones are quite narrow. Haven't measured, but I'm pretty sure these take the same size/number of bearings as the DA track rears. SAm
now what about the axle?
But does it have flats on the axle? And you realize it's a quick release axle, right?
EDIT: Ceya beat me to half of it.

Well just swap the original DA axle and file or mill should solve the rest. Had to do a similar thing on my front to use a Pitlock. Got the right length/thread QR axle and milled a keyway in it for the spacers. Swapping out the cones and nuts for thinner versions also allows chainline adjustment within the same spacing.
...I doubt you'll actually take out a full centimeter of space by doing this.
