**Found**Stock chains....

Hey guys,

I am looking to pick up a few free old 530 & 525 chains for my BW200 restoartion.

Project "big wheel" uses a 530 primary chain and a 525 secondary drive chain for the rear wheel. Since the rear sprokets are expensive and hard to come by I am looking into machining an adapter to run 9'er rear sprockets on it ...... since I have three stock sprockets kicking around in the parts bin,

Anyway if anyone has a old/used servicable 530 or 525 chain they would like to donate to the cause it would be greatly appreciated? Also any 525 rear sprockets would be cool as well. I can cover the shipping of course.

Thanks,
Ian

Wouldn't you know I just talked myself out of getting a new chain and told myself I can make it another year on this one... Now you're making me rethink my decision...

If all goes well with my conversion, I should have a 525 chain from the SV I could send you.

Turns out the secondary is actually a 520 chain. Scored a sweet one locally .... so I am good to go now.

Found, lock it up!
