NOS King R45 Hubset - Campy Freehub Question

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

NOS King R45 Hubset - Campy Freehub Question

Quick question for the group about my most recent LUCKY find of NOS King R45 hubs - is this a Campy 11 speed freehub? Plan to use a potenza 11 speed cassette.

Thanks!

9,10,and 11 speed Campagnolo all use the same freehub body, so that’ll work fine.

That's what I was hoping to hear! Thank you!
Now to find some H + Son Archetypes, silver please, and about 64 DT Swiss Revolution spokes.
Can't wait for spring!

They're lovely things, I just got in a pair of the r45 discs for my wife which will be built with Wheelsmith XL which are similar to the revolutions. Can't decide on the rim. The Archetype looks a little taller then the Velocity A23 I'm considering but smaller then either the Velocity Quill or Aileron. Are you looking at the Archetype as a road or cross rim and how do you think it would hold up for cross?

I'm excited to have them ready for spring in the Northeast, when it finally springs... I think you're right about the profile of the Archetypes at 25mm depth being between the Velocity options you mentioned. I found the link below that I actually found here on BF pretty helpful in making a decision. I'll use the Archetypes for road riding, but the roads around here can be in pretty sad shape, plus I'm what BF calls a "clydesdale" at over 6 and a half feet tall. So, I selected the H+ rims for nothing more than perceived strength and rigidity, well maybe just a teeny bit because I think they look cool too. Let me know what you settle on for your build. There are so many good options out there.
