Default Re: DIY alternatives to the sprocket rag joint?

Gotta be sure you don't hit the bearings of course, it's tough to say without seeing. If it's an oversized flange with a small hub, you might be able to.
I don't have the bike at the moment (waiting for a replacement bike that should be here this week) but if I recall correctly, it's a big hub'ed coaster brake style and the flange was pretty small. With 48 spokes it looked pretty tight. When the new bike comes in I'll give it another look.

I was talking with a friend a while back about using old conveyor belt material. Tire material I think would work if you could get a good large solid piece of it.
I'll check McMaster Carr, they carry everything.
