My Huffy Superia
#1
I have a Huffy Superia and it is kind of messed up right now with the parts on it currently. Is there any way I can get good parts on it and make it a better bike? I know there's some people that find this bike kind of rip off but I love mine, I just need to put good parts on it. Here is a listing of the parts that are on it right now: For the thumb shifters they are Power (same as derailleur which is a Power Index System) a Power model front derailleur or chain guard whatever you call it, and 26 inch wheels. I don't know if the piece over the front crank is called the chain guard or front mount derailleur. And also if you can give me a list of parts that will be good on it. Thanks.

You'd save a lot of money and time if you just went to kmart and got a new huffy for $95..... The parts you are looking for would easily cost three times that. The wheels alone cost more.

Otherwise consider looking for a local bike co op / do it yourself and learn to work on your bike and get used parts............donate your bike to charity.

No. There is nothing on the bike worth salvaging, except possibly the inner tubes. It is not possible to make a decent bike starting with anything on it. Look for an 800 series Trek, Specialized Hardrock, Schwinn Sierra, or similar bike with no suspension as a starting point for your project. More desirable are 900 series Trek and Schwinn PDG.

My PDG 70 with fenders and rack weighs less than a Huffy Superia without wheels; and is stronger.

Well I'm on a tight budget and I don't have enough money to get another Huffy. I want to keep the Superia one I got. Is it possible to clean or save the parts and still ride it?

In that case either find a co op with used parts, or just fix only whats not working, that you need to ride the bike. .
