    I wanted to do this recently to one of my bikes - a mate who works at a bike shop didn't seem to think it would be a problem to replace the solid axle with a hollow axle and skewer, and shouldn't be expensive either.

    There is an alternative to this. Simply replace the threaded nuts on each side with a threaded cam that threads onto the existing axle.
