Yep.. for sure a Harley.. late model from the primary case.. those are some chains.. back in "the day" we would use triple row primary chains for belts.. thier ok, but way heavy..

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

I don't think anyone would ride it.

I vaguely remember those as being very weak links not to be relied on.

Half links

See!! nothing stays on topic! Nothing I tell ya!
My experience has been , half links are not weaker to the point of breaking first but they will stretch under heavy load due to the inherent design, thus requiring a couple of slack adjustments after installation.

It's a way to repair a chain in the field. I used to go hill climbing in the woods. If a chain broke you had to do a field repair. They have a couple of bends in them to fit into the links properly.

Half links

Winch drives, drilling motors drives, turntable drives, (earth drills for foundations)
Blow out preventers, like the one that failed on BP in the Gulf of Mexico.( I did some time in the oil patch)
A lot of them are about the size of the ones on the bike.

vaq

if they stretched,then you had them on backwards,the open end had to be on the end not under torque,okay they stretched anyway,your right,but they really don't use them that much anymore,well how about industrial applications?and they can still be used in instances where their inherent weakness is not really a factor,as in minimal load drivetrain.I see your point,regardless,i have no use for them now.Whew!
