hi am I right in thinking that to change the rear drive sprocket, you just grind the rivets off the old one & bolt the new one on.

Yes if you don't mind the rivet counters pointing out that the sprocket should have rivets in,if you do pop on ebay there's a seller selling the perfect replacement rivets and they're easy to use,or so i'm told..get-me-coat

Although using bolts is an option, is it physically possible to rivet a sprocket onto a hub which is in situ, or does the hub have to be taken out of the wheel to get access to the back of the sprocket?
