Gipiemme cassette body replacement

I just got an older pair of Gipiemme parade wheels. They came with a Campy 10 spd cassette body. I would like to put on a Shimano 10 speed. does anyone know where I can find a compatible cassette body thats Shimano 10 spd for these wheels? do I have to use a Gipiemme one or are there aftermarket brands that will work? I've never had a Campy cassette body before so this is all new to me.

Edit: the hub is an LG 04. if that helps any.

I found these on ebay which have a Shimano compatible freewheel, so I assume they exist.http://www.ebay.com/itm/16h-Hole-Gip...p2047675.l2557

yeah I know they exist. but I'm not gonna spend $279 dollars to buy new hubs just for the cassette body. well, I prolly wont be able to find the right cass. body without taking it to the bike shops in town and just test fitting them. I prefer to not use them though. they always try and up sale things here in Golden Co or sell carbon fiber fitting compound as grease.

I would assume they are Campy copies as that is what Gipiemme is known for. I would remove the freehub and compare it to a Campagnolo freehub. If they are the same there are many Campy to Shimano conversion freehub bodies out there.

cool thank you. I'm trying to get the shimano freehub as I have an older 8 speed cassette and it works with my drivetrain.
