Aermacchi Hlep?

#1

Post by Pete808 » Sat Oct 20, 2018 1:37 am

Anyone here know much about the Aermacchi bikes? We have a customer here at the shop that picked up a 1974 TX125 and needs to replace the chain. My parts guys are a little stumped when it comes to anything that was made before they were born. Any of you guys know what is the chain size or what chain would work as a replacement for a 1974 Aermacchi TX125? Thanks for any assistance.

A "Machinery Handbook" has listings of roller chain. By measuring the pitch and width of the sprocket you can figure the size and a piece of wire can approximate the length. Buy a little extra and cut to suit.
