Re: removing and adding chain links on motorized bicycle chain
actually putting chain back together for me these days is a pair of pliers to get it started then a "C" clamp to press it in place. If chain is not on the bike in an emergency you can pop it with a center punch over a bit of metal with a hole in it. but you do have to be very careful not to drive the rivet all the way through. I used to see my dad do that when I was a kid.
I have a chain break and I high recommend it though over any other method.
