My game plan was a simple one. have the hub milled out to press in a spacer that could hold my sprocket and a bearing. And have the other side where the ruined splines were, milled just enough to press fit another bearing, I chose 6301 (12x37x12) because the OD required the least amount of materiel to be removed from the spline area, and gave me a 12mm ID for a standard axle most mopeds would use. When I got the wheel I was ecstatic. My original plan did not include milling the open hub, just getting a spacer made to press in, so I cut out a good bit of the triangle gusset bits to make room, using a depth gauge on my micrometer to make it decently even, later on the machine shop ended up milling it out just a teeny bit anyway, to make sure it was 100% even the whole way around and the spacer would not try to sit crooked once pounded in.

This was my work cutting away some of the gusset.

I found a machine shop in my town, NYE machine. I saw their specialty was "prototype production and one off work". SUPER pleasant guys and only 60 an hour. they enjoy being the one shop willing to help the local guy with a project out.

Here are the results after the milling of both sides.
