Hi, I'm new to bikes as a passion (I've had bikes off and on throughout the years) and have had the good fortune to pick up three decent '80s road bikes cheap (2 '85 Huffy Omni-10s (1 Suntour-equipped, 1 Huret-equipped) and one '84 Huffy Strider(also Suntour-equipped)). My second Omni-10 I am wanting to convert to fixie. What will I need over the transition period? We're (my local co-op and I) fairly certain 700c wheels will clear, but beyond that I'm unsure what to do. If I can find them at the co-op, what brands should I use for which components? I'm on a fairly tight budget and most of my gear will be from the co-op, but if there's something I shouldn't compromise I will splurge for it. Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide. Also, I'm pretty stuck on my Huffys, so 'get a lighter/better platform' isn't very likely. Thanks again.
