It's not too fancy or anything, but it gets me from a to b, and is super fun to ride Smile

I can't see the tread on the front tire, but the rear looks like it's either a Panaracer Dart or a WTB Velociraptor front. Those tires should be on the front, not the rear, since they're directional treads.

a little bit of oil never hurt anything....take them apart and clean them really good, throw some oil on and try again...new cables too?

definitely new cables, without a doubt. they're all cracked and broken. the levers are also messed up. I went to pull on the front brakes the other day, and a piece of plastic snapped and flew out. don't know what it was or where it went. I'm just going to be safe and replace everything.
