Hello, I have my first bike ever which is a magna 20" bmx bike. It's seen better days and has been through allot. Been stolen a few times and traveled with me all the way across the country. Had it for 20 yrs and would like to show it some love. Started with a front hand break and back peddle breaks (coaster breaks?). I clearly need new rims And want to replace the crank assembly. Not sure what's involved in replacing the cranks and if turning it from coaster breaks to non involves something I would like the forward/backward peddle style not a mountain bike type free gliding system. Also not looking to spend a ridiculous amount of money. Though about buying a mongoose from Walmart and stripping it? I do apologize for my lack of knowledge and not knowing a whole lot. First post and def a noob. Thanks for you help!
