HAH!? that was so funny i forgot to laugh... excluding that first "hah." no but really, i don't think there is, try ebay if you want to find some parts to replace on yours.

You should really trick it out by scouring your local Wal-Mart, Target, and K-Mart. Look for anything with the word 'extreme' or better yet 'X-Treme!' on it, or anything really, really flourescent. Those parts will trick your ride out and make you bling-bling cool.

If you are being serious, then write serious:
"I have a 12 inch bike from Wal-Mart that I am looking to try to just have some fun and screw around on. You know, a pit-bike thing... nothing serious. But, I wanted to upgrade some stuff. Do you know what would fit?"
Well, if it is not a 20" bike then you aren't going to get good forks, rims, or tires for it. But, otherwise, everything should be close to standard. The hubs are typically 3/8" so any 3/8" hub can replace the existing one. You could put a $200.00 Profile cassette hub on it if you want.
But, really, almost all bike stuff across the spectrum from pro bikes to k-mart crap still uses standard sizing and fairly common placement. So, a lot of stuff to trick it out can come from bike shops... Still not sure why you would want to because for the same money you can buy a GOOD 16" Hoffman or Haro and really have something that deserves to be tricked out.
