That's an interesting find! Here is some info from the BikePro site about SunTour's AP chains, but yours look different: BikePro.com / Buyer's Guide / Archival Review of Suntour Chains - Bicycle Parts at discount prices / the Buyer's Guide / Bicycle Parts at their finest! / Professional Bicycle Source / Bike Pro

hi scott, thanks for the link

it is very similar to the AP12 in terms of shape, the diffrence is the color

i tired it (the 9.9 one) on 9 speed shimano groupsets, and it works perfectly... =)

These are nice chains and they do work great with 7/8 speed stuff haven't tried 9 but based on the spacing I think they would work good with most 9 speed stuff also. As for value maybe $30-40 to someone who wants to complete a nicer Suntour groupo vintage correct, as just a nice chain $15. If I had them I would probably go ahead and use them.

If it's NOS then, go for it. I've found several NOS Suntour items on ebay in the last few years. Suntour rocks! But, if those are off an old bike I would pass. New chains are so much nicer. I've been using these on all my old bikes: http://www.amazon.com/KMC-X8-93-Chai.../dp/B003UWJVKK
