    Where is the best place to buy around 20 ft of this type of chain? I would say it has to be at least 3/8" thick.

    Would Menards or Home Depot type places have this? I am looking for a chain to lock a motorcycle to a post at an apartment building.

    Most hardware stores should have chain.

    You could also check AW Direct
    They are a towing supply company and have loads of tie down stuff.

    use a good cable, or both,

    less people have cable cutters than bolt cutters

    Don't settle for case hardened, get thru-hardened. Square stock links, too. Bolt cutters slip off square stock.

    And don't overlook the post. The thief won't.

    Good thought, you also might want to consider a circuline padlock. Should be harder to cut off.
