The original belt in these photos was made by my friend Fjord, and he deserves credit for the idea and for making a number of these belts. He used thin strips of innertube rubber to attach the pieces of chain to the belt, though, and after a year of heavy wear those started to give out -- hence the repair work I'm doing now, and the photos for this instructable. The punched holes for fastening the belt are also starting to show wear, but I haven't figured out how to fix that yet. Let me know if you have any ideas!
Step 1: Gather supplies.
- old bike innertube(s)
- clean bike chain & chainbreaker tool
- old bike sprocket, ~2" ID
- 4 small flathead screws, with matching tiny nuts
- ~2 yd thin elastic cord (I had a fair bit left over.)
- heavy-duty holepunch
- measuring tape
