Searching for my childhood bike...

Hi. I got my very first bike for my 7th birthday, it was a huffy. I am trying to find another one like it but can't seem to find any kind of online database and I am having no luck with general online searches. I can't remember the model or what it was called. I am hoping someone can direct me on how to go about finding some info on it so that I can search for one. It was purple in front and faded to white, with the change starting on the top tube. It had white tires, a white plastic seat, coaster brakes (and if I recall, a hand front brake but my parents might have added that later). It came with a foam cover on the top tube and I think it might have had a "racing number" piece of paper/plastic on the handlebars. I took that off right away so I don't remember what it looked like. It also had white pedals. That is about all that I can remember about it. Any help at all would be appreciated! I turned 7 in 1990 but it could have been an 89' model. Anyway, I know the chances are slim that anyone will have any info on it, my parent's probably bought it at the K-Mart down the street and there wasn't anything particularly special about the bike, accept that it was the bike that got me to love riding. Anyway, thanks in advance.
