    Instead of laying it on the ground, hold something heavy up against the back side of the chain that has mass. The inertia of that object will be enough, it's just a little more awkward. something like a sledge hammer head with no handle in it would be perfect, drive the link through the hole. That kind of improvise

    Avoid using the sprocket to hammer against because that can bend the sprocket.

    Watch just the first 30 seconds of this one, the man needs to put something heavy up against the back of the track so he has something to hit against.

    Cut-off wheel or hacksaw. You don't need that piece to be intact anyways, it's already getting broken at the pins either way.

    That sounds easiest. And least likely to break something.

    ... you still have to grind the rivets and punch the pins out, now you just can't lay it on something as easy.
    But you can work on the ground. (to shorten the new chain)

    If it's just a matter of removing the old chain and not caring about it, for that matter you can use a great big pair of Bolt cutters.

    + he wanted to pull the new chain over the counter-shaft sprocket using the old chain, can't do that if he mangles it.

    Cut link off old chain, leave chain on bike. Tie end of new chain to end of old chain with wire, twine, whatever. Pull new chain around front sprocket via old chain.

    Seems like cutting old chain and popping rivets to shorten new chain is the way to go. I think even if I cut the old chain will be able to pull it through.

    Although it would be nice to lay the old chain down next to the new chain when I shorten the new chain just to make sure I get it right.

    Measure twice cut once.
