I would still not advise welding ANYTHING to your axle. Use keys. Not only can you never remove and swap sprockets when they wear out, but welding on the axle does weaken it.

You mention that you just have the bare minimum and basic tools available. I am not too sure if from that comment you might also mean that you haven't done much fabrication work before, but if that is the case, then a motorcycle engine is probably not the best choice for you. You are going to have to do a lot of fab work to get the engine mounted, get the shifter working etc. etc. etc.
