New here to the forum, obviously.
I have quite a few questions, dealing with my bike itself, restoration, mechanics, etc.
I'll be posting in a few different areas, but I guess here is just a crash compilation of all that is going on.
I have had a Huffy "Carrera" now for over 7 years.. It's been out of commission for the last 5, however I am attempting a resurrection on her. I just replaced the chain.
I know this thing is vintage.. but, being a huffy, I doubt its worth anything haha
I noticed that I can't get into the highest gear cogs on both the rear wheel cassette as well as the front crank chainring. I have experimented, and have concluded that the gear shifter cables are moving the derailleurs at a full range of motion.
**One hypothesis that came to mind is that the chain is a link or two too big. (bike shop said this might happen - I bout a SRAM 8-speed chain (PC830))
This should be a good intro for now.. got a couple more things I gotta research before asking for advice.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Here are some pics - (sorry - just took them in the dark.)
