I have a 1977 koga road bike with SR crank and shimano 600 rear mech.
Can anyone advise the best chain to buy for this?

Pop into your local bike shop.

Something like a Shimano 5-8 speed HG40 chain should be suitable.

lbs would be best bet.

although if you count the cogs at the back just look for the same number on the chain. wiggle is always a good bet or ribble

6 speed cassette = 6 speed chain.
