First of all: Yes. I know this bicycle isn't worth spending time, money or effort on. However, I'm going to be spending time, money and effort on it!
I've never taken a bike apart, never tried to refurbish anything, and I don't know much about how bikes work, and I'm taking this as an opportunity to learn a few things.
It's tiny (24" wheels, it's the "kids" version of everyone's favorite 40 pound Schwinn boat anchor).
Out of curiosity, can this be updated to have quick release brakes?
Where would one find 24" wheels that would fit this, if I decide that's a good idea?
What chain could I buy to replace this one? (seriously, I don't know and I can't figure it out...)
Anyway, here are a few photos so far. I think I'm going to refinish the thing in a blue metallic of some sort, but we'll see. Again, this bike is just to learn some techniques and skills on.
