Did campy make a multi speed freewheel

I have been looking around and see a campagnolo freewheel tool kit, which looks to have a thread on freewheel in it. But am unable to find an actual threaded freewheel by campy its self.

was trying to do an all camp build out but i guess there is a limit.

Is there some sort of thread-on component that can accept the cassette cogs ?

Campag stopped making their aluminium freewheels (6 and 7sp) a long time ago.

I have a Campy alloy 6 speed freewheel on my Rock Lobster. It was made in the late 80's and cost $325 back then. Keep an eye on eBay or CraigsList, they do show up from time to time. You'll also need the Campy specific freewheel puller to get it off.

The only parts that I don't recall Campy making are bars, stems, saddles & tires/tubes.
Oh, and possibly chains & spokes.
My Lobster (#13, built long ago, back in the shire) is all Campy except;
Bars = Cinelli
Stem = Cinelli
Saddle = Avocet III
Tires = Vittoria tubulars
Chain = Regina hollow pin
Spokes = DT double butted w/alloy nipples
Toe clip straps = Alfredo Binda

If they cost $325 back then that helps explain why they cost so much today. They do come up on eBay, but I've never been able to buy one.

Stetching the definition I guess a freehub has a threaded on component that accepts cassette cogs. It's called the freehub body.

Seriously, as to whether there is an adapter that screws onto a freewheel hub to accept cassette cogs, I'm almost certain there isn't. You will need a complete hub.

BTW, aluminum alloy freewheels (both Campy and Sun Tour made them) were not only expensive but wore out very quickly and were pretty much limited to races or the excessively rich.

Modern light cassettes use either all titanium or a mix of titanium (larger cogs) and steel (smaller cogs). They still cost a lot and give up a fair bit of durability but not as badly as Al.

Go with an old Regina freewheel, they're on ebay regularly. They're Italian (the old ones, anyway) and most Campy-equipped bikes came with them during that time period I believe. I found exactly what I was looking for on ebay in a Regina five speed freewheel recently, 14 x 26, grimy looking but it cleaned up beautifully. I paid $9.99 plus shipping. It's going on my Campy-equipped '72 Raleigh International. Original freewheel on the bike was a five speed Regina 14 x 24 I believe, but that was long gone when I got the bike-
