Last year I fixed up a simple cruiser for my daughter to ride.
It is a Huffy of indeterminate age. Mostly I cleaned a lot of rust although the chrome fenders were in good shape. I did replace the fender stays and the handlebars, both of which had no chrome under the rust. I repacked the wheel and headset bearings.
The seat and grips were new along with the white wall tires. I added the Wald Grocery basket on the front and it makes a nice ride.
