Here is a great deal on an older WIpperman Connex gold color 10sp chain from a few years ago.  This was a top fancy model as we understand - it is brass plated for a snazzy gold color.  What may be interesting for some is that 10sp chains from a few years ago were a smidge wider than the current 10sp versions.  This might make them work a bit better on chainrings that are really designed for 8 or 9sp.  We haven't tested this, but it is a hunch. 

 

In any case, this chain represents a great value.  We use Wipperman on all our Campy 10sp drivetrain builds and really like the results.  This chain does come with a connex connector in the box - the connector is silver and not gold, these come to us in factory sealed cases so it is the correct original link.  This chain is pretty hard to find now.  Its silver brother the 1008 is more common.  For the life of us, we can't figure out the WIpperman chain naming philosophy.  But this one is clearly for 10sp as the confirmed by reading the box!
