I've done a convertion that way. I used a cog from an old cassette I had and drilled it. The cog was tempered steel so I had to untemper it before I could drill though it by heating it up almost red hot and then dunking it in water. Drilled through no problem after that. Of course I had ruined 2 drill bits by then. The Boone cogs look awesome for this type of convertion. Too bad I stripped some of the threads on the hub trying this before. Should have spent a bit more time paying attention to bolting steel to aluminum. Good luck.
When sadness fills my days
It's time to turn away
And then tomorrow's dreams
Become reality to me
