I have an old Huffy from my uncle that he bought at around the 90s and I'm thinking of restoring it and maybe upgrade some of the parts. But Huffy doesn't seem to have any much information for bikes over 10yrs old. Here's a photo of the bike.
Obviously, I need to strip the paint of rust that's accumulated and clean it. But I'd like to know what I can do to see if any current generation parts I could use. I'm planning to convert this into a commuter or maybe a road bike (not to be raced). I would guess that I need to replace the whole drivetrain. Maybe fit in 700c wheels or something similar? Brakes need replacing as well, since it used old caliper brakes, I'm guessing that I can use some modern brakes? I suppose the headtube needs some work as well. Basically, I'm only planning to keep the frame and the fork.
Hoping somebody could help.
