Came across this photo on Facebook, in a non-English classic bike group. The auto-translate didn't really explain anything.

I've seen pics of these chains before. I think the outside pins would drive more cogs for other mechanical applications. I'm sure our C&V engineering squad will know.

That's one of the first chains IIRC. Like 1890 or so.
It was one of the few "options" that were there for bikes, but in the end this design didn't "win" and we got the chain and cogs like we currently have.


hope this helps.
