You could do that, but it's a lot of messing around and you probably won't save much money. I would think it would be a lot easier to buy a 14-32 freewheel. Then you'd have a spare as well.

You can buy a set of 5 generic triple chainring bolts on Ebay. I got some this spring and they were fairly cheap and look nice. I believe they are the 8 mm size but could be mistaken.

Beautiful bike! I'm glad the chainring worked out. 36t is a nice ring size, low enough to give you a good climbing gear, high enough to still be useable on roads.
