A chum in California needs some chain, and he tells me he can't get it there... crazy

Now I KNOW that can't be right, so....

Come on guys don't let me down, WHERE in the USA can I get some 5/8th x 1/4 chain. It's going on a 1914 Harley, so it's over to you lot, good luck and thanks... wink

I would get onto Jim Comstock and see if IWIS (Made in GermanY) that size is available, if not 'Andy the Chainman in the UK is the supplier.
Better than Chinesium chains. (imo)


More bikes and projects than you can shake a stick at but they should be done in two shakes of a lamb's tail.

Here's. guy who will email people around the world to ask a question that he could have found the answer to on his own computer, in less time. What the heck man.

Tom bro, think he was putting me under some sort of *Test* but thanks to you guys, I've passed with flying colours... :bigt grin

Got to admit, I too was flumoxed as to why he didn't search around on t'internet, after all chain should be dead easy to find.. crazy

Right, enough of this marlarky, there's fettling afoot. Don't want to waste me off day pushing bloody buttons, I'll leave that to the experts.. wink

Dozens of makes of motorcycle chain in all sizes is readily available anywhere in the USA including eBay ,Amazon,and the numerous online motorcycle vendors...You may not find the exact length so it'll have to be cut....I prefer the Japanese Tsubaki, DID or RK chains, but not their inexpensive entry level stuff...


I take off bike parts until it doesn't function, then put on just enough so it functions
