Were "modern" high-flange casette hubs ever made?

Just curious but were "modern" high-flange casette hubs ever made? You can still find high-flange track hubs but I've never seen a high-flange cassette hub. I know high-flange went out of style before casettes became popular but you'd think some obscure manufacturer might have made one.

I don't see anything on the Phil Wood site today that I would really descibe as "high flange" although Phil Wood calls them that. On the other hand, I just ran across some American Classic hubs that don't look half bad:

Ooh, those are pretty nice. Chris King also uses a higher flange.

White Industries makes a high-flange hub that takes a cassette. I think it's intended for tandems. I don't think of the Chris King's as being a terribly high flange -- not as tall as the Phil Wood standard touring hub.

Chris King and I think Phil Wood have high flange hubs for tandems but they are 145mm spacing so you'd be hard pressed to make that work on a road bike that is probably 120-126mm to begin with.

So my wild hair idea for a 60s-70s vintage to modern upgrade would be to cold set the frame to 130mm, use the American Classic hub (with the name removed of course), and Campy 10-speed casette cadmium or chromate/dichromate plated to get that nice vinatge gold color, Campy 10-speed bar-end shifters mounted on the downtube bosses (just saw that in another thread), and whatever was the last Record 10-speed alloy RD they produced (late 90's - early 2000's?). The shifters might be a minor problem since many bikes from that period didn't have braze-ons for shifters but maybe you could mount the levers on a standard Record clamp. That would actually be better I think in terms of appearance. Might need to monkey with the chainring spacing on the crank too but you should be able to make that work.

Hmmm...maybe a project for someday.

well, crap. If we have different qualities of flange highness, check out the new roval top of the lines. That's a way high flange...
