What happens to old used motorcycle chains?
« on: March 15, 2019, 09:08:59 am »
Hi guys

I have a few ideas that I would like to try out with some old motorcycle chain, but only if I could get it for free. Maybe some steel sprockets could also come in handy.

Anyone in Centurion or Edenvale have a few old chains in your way? Please let me know.

Thanks

I give mine to the re-cycle collectors on a Monday - they sell steel for cash....

But I will look anyway!

I will have to hide the stuff from my wife at first. Thereafter, as I play with ideas, I can either give stuff away, keep it, or sell it for beer money if it looks real nice

I will take the left overs to a recycle/scrap type place when I am done.

Is that now an O-ring or X-ring blade?
