Rexnord Industries makes 1" pitch block chain in several widths. They do not sell direct but the chain (by the foot) and links can purchased through Applied Industrial Technologies (they have 450 service centers in North America). 2018 prices were $18.60/foot for B-502 (3/16" width) block chain and $23.69/foot for B-503 (1/4” width) block chain. Links are around $4.00 each.

I picked it up pretty much as you see it. I do have plenty of skiptooth chain, just not period. Probably gonna make it a roller for now so my wife and i can ride it. Thanks for the input.
