    rebuild or buy new (cheap)

    I have an old Hoffman Resistance sitting in my basement from before I got my drivers license. I want to get back into some street riding but this bike is in no riding condition.

    Being in the number of peices its in I have no idea the condition of the crank or any of the important things...

    Problems:
    Handelbars are trashed from a nast fall (right is at about 45 degree angle)
    Front wheel is... missing...
    Brakes probably could use new pads and probably cables.
    seat is trashed

    Good:
    Frame is banged up but still solid
    chain and sprocket appears passable...
    I already have it.

    Obviously I want to get riding as soon as I can so it seems like I should start new.
    Is it a decent enough bike to keep around or should I just junk it in the hundreds of peices it sits and look for a new/used bike on craigslist.

    I feel I know the answer but shoot anyways.
