I've got EIGHT combinations for eight chains and at least two that won't respond to any of them, I'm tired of cutting new chains. I can't finish working on it until it's free from the stand.

It's like lost film at the One Hour Photomat, someday my prints will come.

Time for a belt set up. LOL. JK.

You could try a BMX half link chain. They're not usually cheap though.

Four of the seven out there were cut free and are on single keyed chains now, Darla is off for repairs and Molly is in the house having a front basket and fenders installed.

I have some nice big chromed fenders *non-train light with a gorgeous3:inch lollypop reflector to add a Delta 4-way light to and finish my 'motorcycle' bike,So far I'm very happy, it has turned out better than I could have dreamed!

I have a non-train light front fender that matches and still need to install them.

Her name is Molly, after the red headed girl in Richard Thompson's 1952 Vincent Black Lightning song. Poor girl was in love with a robber who promised it to her if he died. Vincents are quite special.
