okay, here's how to fabricate it. you waste a 45 tooth sprocket if you do it this way, but this way requires no real measuring, just centering. you could use a piece of steel plate in place of the 45 to do this too, but then you gotta measure and do more.
okay, here's the reasons a 36 tooth won't usually work on the snowflakes.
-they use a different bolt patern.
-the 45 tooth is "taller" than the 36 tooth.
-the inside diameter on the 36 is too small for the hub of the snowflake, it won't fit over.
we noticed that when the 36 was set into the 45 it was almost the same height now.
heres what we did.
-all the teeth were cut off the 45. this should leave you wiith just a flat base.
-next we cut several notches into the base.
-at each notch we tack welded the 36tooth sprocket to our base.
-next use a drill to drill through the holes in the 45 tooth base and through the 36 tooth.
-then you'll have to grind out the inside of the 36 tooth so it'll fit over your hub on the snowflake.
-once this is all done just a teeny smidge needs to be machined off the back of the entire thing to make sure the height is exactly the same as the 45 tooth was originally(this is crucial to keeping your chainline straight).
good luck, i still didn't get a picture. i'll get all good angles and the sprocket on the rim, and the rim on the bike.
