Why are you replacing it?...Just want new?,... or is it so rusted/kinked it won't bend around the sprockets?,...Somewhere in between?....
What size/pitch is it? (428 ?, 520 ?, 530 ?).....
My answers will vary depending on your answers to my questions......

I'm looking to replace a rusted chain on my 74' CB450 and also need recommendations. Chain is a 530 with 92 links. Sorry for thread hijack.

It seems to be fine. I just thought after sitting for more than 30 years it might be time. I did clean and lubricate. It’s not stiff or rusty now. You think it’s good to use?

Were it my bike, and it was just "surface rust" (no deep pitting) I'd probably run it... BUT I'd be saving-up for the two new sprockets and a new chain and replace all THREE as a unit fairly soon.....

A customer's bike would get all three now........

Where would you purchase these items. I want to make sure they are quality items.
Thanks
