You can probably fit on a 7s freewheel. It would depend on the hub, but may need the axle respaced, and the truing redished.

There is some variability in freewheels. I found the DNP EPOCH (11T, 7s) freewheel I bought a few years ago was somewhat wider than other brands which were moderately undercut, thus taking less space. I don't know if they've updated freehubs since then to make them narrower.
