on my 1981 k, I started to pull my chain off to do a replacement but while looking for the master link i found there wasnt one i could see. Has anyone else ever encountered this? Or am i just plain crazy? Right now my plan is to cut the chain off, but i thought i would get some input before i just went for it.
They are pretty common. I cut them, and use a clip type master link. Have never seen one break.

I like vintage bikes because they take me away from the clutter of technology that I work with everyday and back to a simpler time of mechanical elegance and simplicity.. "ninadm"

It is riveted, no master link. That was commonly done by Honda at that time, on the 630 chains. The new chain can either be used with a master link, or you can rivet it closed, making it similar to OEM. Cheers!
