I have personally seen aluminum spockets wear (hook) after few hundred miles. Those who sell them or don't put many miles on their bike will disagree. They are certainly easier than steel for the custom guys to crank out.

BoyGoFast, Dax, Zoom, and many others sell cheap steel 36t sprockets which is a good size for these bikes. I got a few 36t from BGF last year for $12 ea shipped. Not fancy chromed or dished but they work wonders on these HTs.
