Ash's Huffy Bike Build / Restore Step 2

The first thing you must do with every restoration projects is take as many pictures as possible. Especially take pictures at the important components. Also in places where you will need to reassemble multiple layers (headset). You cannot take too many pictures.
The other good trick is to lay out each part as you take it off. Then take a picture of this and you have your own exploded view.
Time to Dismantle:
There is no particular order you have to do this in. Just make sure you use the right tools to take apart the bike. Some of the bolts and screws on the bike can be difficult to find and replace so be careful when removing them. Also have some PB buster or WD-40 to help loosen rusted parts. Often times the part must soak over night or even for a few days. Be patient.
