Cruisin' on my Bluebird
I think this maybe my freewheel, or perhaps a very slightly later version.
From the 'Emilio Bozzi, Milano' catalogue of 1950.....

...and what a useful resource that is if you like Italian bicycles from that era!

This image suggests that my freewheel is incredibly well used!
I will check the chain for markings tomorrow.
My chain is devoid of any markings, on either side.

Great thread, although I only understand about half of it! I was fortunate to visit the Bartali Museum in Firenze and getting there and back was quite an adventure while the rest of the family did something else. I now have visions of my retirement...wandering the back alleys of Italy looking for vintage bikes.

Italy or France perhaps, I can think of worse things to do in your retirement.
Fine bicycles, fine wines and fine foods!

I will get back to you tomorrow re. the above questions.
Having said that I'd get back to you tomorrow back on January 30th @juvela, I am getting back to you now.
Somewhat tardy, I'll admit.
I've just found a mark on the chain.
It's not on every side plate and the chain was rather dirty when I first looked.....

...you were right, it matches the freewheel in being from 'Way Assauto'.

Chains wear out by stretching links, which in turn, wears out teeth on cogs and rings.
Before you use an old chain, you should probably check it for stretch.
