Go to the Kryptonite website they're doing free exchanges on all the old tubular key locks. If you need a lock right now I'd suggest the flat keyed EV Disck Lock It commonly is sold with the New York series of chains.

Yeah, the NY series locks are great. I have the chain one, which I love, but it's heavy. A small price to pay though for security.

Personally I just go to Home Depot and buy a good strong lightweight chain and a lock that looks good and use that for my lock. Mines not to heavy so I dont think anyone else's should be either.

Please take the time to read through the discussions here about kryptonite alternatives:

Have a NY Chain, need a substitute lock
