I ended up buying a whole new chain from a local bike shop here in town to get that successful first 30 miles under my belt.

I'll try to post pics when I learn how and/or have enough posts to be allowed to do so. Then you guys might take back the "Great Lookin' Bike" compliments. It really is an ugly old thing....

But it's become so much more fun now with the Engine working now!!
The same thing happened with me, twice. The chain looks ok but probably just a little stretched, so didnt replace it.
