Great news! Glad it was nothing serious.

On a lighter note I would like a smoked turkey sammich on sour dough bread, with provlone cheese and spicy mustard.

Dang, someone suggested that and got shot down. Lol.

Glad you got it sorted out and it's something as simple as a nut

someone who knows more can chime in, but any concern for your chain from the rubbing?

WOW!!! Fortunate!!! I don't know how it didn't wad itself up inside the cover or rip the front sprocket out of the case! With the rear wheel still turning the chain and all.... Did this happen while at a stop? Did the chain come off the rear sprocket too? I visualize horrible things if this were to happen at speed! Am I thinking of this wrong?

Ahh... after looking closer at the pictures, I'm assuming the sprocket didn't come off the shaft, it just slid over off the splines?

Talk to Patrick about it - I'm sure if there is a way to salvage the shaft he'll be able to show you. Perhaps it could be threaded a bit smaller and another size nut used. The nut doesn't bear much load - simply keeps the sprocket from moving I would think.

well, if the chain was rubbing on the frame, it was making noise at some point. good thing that didn't bind up and toss you off. lucky.

There should of been a lock washer to stop that from happening. You may be able to get a die and chase the threads if they aren't chewed up too bad.

I'd recommend having the bike checked out if you have the time.

Best way to prevent future issues is to know what condition the bike is in. Preventative maintenance and early warnings create a safer and better performing ride.

the shaft is hardened steel, i'm sure the threads will be fine.....

surprised you couldn't hear the shaft turning against the sprocket when you put it in gear, oh well, all's well that ends well

their is a spacer that locks over the nut that you need as well, which was probably left off when someone switched the sprocket. yes i would suggest cleaning up the threads before just running it on if they look messed up. you will just mess them up more and mess the new nut up by just running it on

nope. a flat washer. but that bolt should be a to get off, which prolly means that the sprocket was changed and not torqued back to specs. that bolt prolly made a racket when it feel out too unless it had been out for awhile and the sprocket finally made it's way off.

that's also more money being spent , but it's money for something you love

It is likely repairable, but... It's the main drive sprocket. Imagine the torque and speeds this thing is operating at when you're cruising at 75 mph. The last thing you want is that chain coming loose and locking up the rear wheel. Make sure it is 100 percent right before you put your life on the line!

I'd have the sprocket inspected closely while you're down there. Best way is to compare the teeth to a new one or look for any slight abnormal wear. If you have an assload of miles on the bike, I'd change it anyway.
