I've been looking for an inch picth chain but cant find the kind I want. The picture below shows what I am finding. The one I am looking for has a solid spacer link, if that makes sense. So in other words the small link between the large link is a solid piece of metal. What type of chain am I looking for? Does it have a name, manufacturer?

You're looking for a "Block chain" - good luck finding one, but a normal inch pitch chain will work as a replacement.

I remember seeing the block chains on track bikes back in the 70's when I raced. Usually a couple guys would have them on their bikes. A lot of old equipment was still being used back then. Its the only inch pitch chain I ever saw. I'll keep looking. That old stuff has to be sitting around in someones bikeshop/workshop somewhere.
