I agree the Sedis chains were great, and yes they were the originators of the modern "bushingless" design. Do not try to push the pin in after removal. It's always a good idea to leave the pin in.

The chain may or may not be worn, as we don't know if it was original equipment - the bike would have been Suntour equipped. Look to Sheldon or Park sites to determine how worn the chain is. If minor you can swap to a new one and keep the same rear cog. There is a NOS Sedis on eBay for $28 including shipping if you want to get another one, but a new 7/8 speed chain with a master link might be the best choice.

p.s. Hope you turned out OK on the frame damage issue!
