Talking Old sprocket, new ideas?

People of all kinds, lend me your ears. I have a situation regarding my sprocket.
Its off a American Cruiser(Yellow) model 425B-09. My problem is that this sprocket is pressed on to the brake drum. The company that made this go-kart or the sprocket is no longer in business, so i was told. I can't find it anywhere. if anyone could help i would greatly appreciate it. I don't have pictures yet; but i will be able to get those soon. Thanks.

Yeah, that was me. I don't think all the effort is worth it if you're able to find the right sprocket elsewhere. If it's something that's no longer available or needs special dimensions, then making you're own is pretty much your only way out.

Here's the link to the post about it:

And here's the post about the software to draw it:
