I've used the SedisSport/Sachs/SRAM chains for years with vintage drive-trains, and they work very well. The model numbers keep changing, but they all are essentially newer versions of the same basic chain type/design. Any of the chains in the "8 speed" category will work well, look appropriate, are readily available, and are a great value. - Wayne Bingham Lovettsville, Virginia USA
