My old Huffy was sitting around for years and the cables were rusty and the bike would not shift properly. I flipped the bike or hung it in positions so I could use penetrating oil like PB Blaster and squirt the cables and let sit over night. Flip the bike and squirt and soak again. I got them all working freely now. My bike also had rust on the rims and an SOS pad and LOTS of time cleaning them made them new again. As for lites, I went to Walmart and found these Bell front and rear lites for like 12 bucks and they are on steady or blink if you prefer. Here is a few pics of the lites............







Here is what an old, rusty bike looks like after pulling it out of the garage after sitting 10 years............



And here is the same bike after freeing the cables, polishing the bike, cleaning rust, etc...........



Good luck with your bike!
