I soaked the chain on my 1948 Whizzer in used motor oil for over a year! while i was restoring the rest of the bike. When i took it out of the oil , i just wiped it off with a rag and worked the stuck links back and forth until they were free as i could get them and put it on the bike. That was 2 years ago and it hasn`t broke yet!! Yes, i know...most people cant wait for a year for a chain to soak in motor oil! This chain is 53 years old!!!
