Default Scooter Axle

Just trying to put together a simple scooter axle and need some feedback so I don't ruin things as usual

Have a new tire with hub, the shaft fits perfectly inside flush. I"m planning on welding a large washer onto the hub / wheel, and connecting the sprocket to the washer with small bolts. (Image attached). The sprocket will drive the wheel but not the shaft.

For the outside attachment points I planned to use loops for the axles to ride in, with a steel bushing. Through that I'd put a bolt to lock the bushing to the shaft.

The motor will drive the sprocket -> tire spins freely on the axle.

Is that a good arrangement?

I'm too drunk to explain well, hopefully it makes sense.
