Zipp 3000

I just recently won a Zipp 3000 tri-spoke wheel on ebay with the conclusion that it will go for pretty cheap since it had no hub and it was discontinued about 12 years ago. I was right....

so now i have a problem.

Where do i find a hub to fit this beast? i've contacted zipp and they no longer produce nor can replace the axle assembly/hub parts in it. I contacted HED, hoping maybe that there were some similarities in their hub design because they shared the patent for the tri-spoke with zipp, but that was also a dud. I'm still waiting to hear back from Corima and sheldon brown.

but does anybody know anything to help me out, or point me in the right direction?...

or am i going to have to make a clock out of this thing?
