Default Looking to convert 14" suspended floor to legs

I'm looking to convert my 14" suspended floor tom to a floor tom with legs? What are some of my options out there besides drilling?

Also, I have DW Drum Workshop series kit. Would it be possible to custom make a 16" floor tom from DW, the kit's pretty old so I'm not sure if it'll work out..
Thanks!

Check out the Gauger Dyna-Mount. I was going to use one of these but I went suspended. It is a suspension mount system that attaches to legs, not a tom mount.

A custom drum maker may be able to exactly replicate the drum you're talking about. The finish will be the hardest thing to match, and may be impossible if it is some freaky wrap.

Yea a few companies do the mounted/floating leg hardware. Once bought you'd just have to remove you lower hoop to attach it to your lugs. simples.
