yup, I tore apart a bunch of roller chain - using just about every part except for the rivet/pins. I used three different kinds of bicycle chains, and a similar sized roller chain that I think came from an electric garage door opener. The lacing points are solid squarish doughnut shaped roller bearings from the inside of the links; the cylinder shaped things in the bottom trim are also from the inner links, being the sleeves/bushings that the bearings rotate on and that hold together the two plates that make up the inner links of a roller chain. The somewhat brass colored links are from bushingless roller chains (a common type of bicycle chain today), which use a different sort of link/plate in the roller link that I have not yet found much admirable use for, roller links from bushingless chains also do not have the nifty little cylindrical sleeve/bushings (which filled quite a few hacky sacks before I realized I could weave them)... and the other parts mostly: 1/8"ID by .045" 316 stainless... oh, partially lined with soft leather...

pretty close, 1712 is the count I get based on notes in one of my sketch books, though I haven't actually sat down and counted from the actual garment.
