Chain

hey guys all the years and bikes this is my first riveted chain, I need to have it in tonight or saturday for riding the rest of the weekend, I do not have a tool, is there any magic way with a c-clamp or does anyone on the northside feel like helping? I'm very mechanically inclined so I don't think this should be much of a challenge but then sometimes you just don't know, 1FC ( David )

You can get the riveter/breaker fairly cheap at CG. Prolly a good tool to have.

Northside but I dont have a press. I will be in the shop from 8-4 Saturday if you wanted to come by; I'd recommend 3-on. I dont have to do any track prep anymore, the Katy folk are taking care of it. I have a pitbull too so you'd be covered.

and A/C in the shop.

trouble with Motorcycles Unlimited, I dont want to have to load and unload it just to rivet the chain, if they had a unloading dock I might,


Thanks matt, but I will have new sprockets on and don't want to ride with the old chain, Dave
