Revamp Felt Sector 24

So I bought this bike sometime around 2008. Rode it for maybe a year and its been sitting in the garage since. Wife was threatening send it to Goodwill and I just couldnt let that happen so I stripped it.

I wanted to create this thread for two reasons. One, to document the changes. Two, Im a novice when it comes to rebuilding bikes so input is welcomed.

So here it is in all of its filthy glory.




I got online and ordered some new parts and stripped the bike to give it a good clean. Plan on repainting the handle bars and forks.

Parts I ordered:
AME 702 Unitron retro BMX grips all red w/ Grip Savers

24x1.75 Sun Rhyno Lite XL BMX Wheels Flip/Flop w/ DT Spokes Pair Black

24 x 1.50-1.95 Schrader Standard Valve Inner Tube

24 x 1.75 IRC Siren SX All Black BMX tire

Still considering new cranks. Thinking I may need a new headset and bottom bracket.

For cranks it came with a 3pc set. Not sure if it makes a difference between 2 and 3pc.

Confused as crap as to what I need to rebuild the complete bottom bracket and what to use to press with.

As you can tell I am not going all out on the build using high dollar parts and its ok. The bike isnt being built for tricks or racing its literally just used as a cruiser and random jumping to try an hurt myself.

Bikes back together. Ended up ordering a new freewheel, brakes, and headset. Chain was a pita without a master link tool. Wasnt the quick connect type im used too it had a small clip that held the link together. Also realized cheap chain breakers are pointless.

Something is off with the headset too. Got some noticable play. And the tension screw will not get flush. Tearing back about in a few days to see whats up. Any suggestions?
Pics tomorrow
