Restore a used bicycle

I will restore a used bicycle using as few new parts as possible, and give it to a friend in need of a bicycle. New parts are consumables, or parts that are difficult to reuse without compromising reliability: brake pads, cables, spokes, bearing balls. Used parts are parts I have lying around from previous bike builds, or can be found on Kijiji and similar platforms: the bike, rims, tires, handle bars, brakes, crank set.

    Looking forward to a refreshing bike ride home to continue working on my bike restoration project.

    The original steel rims are in bad shape. I have good pair of used aluminium rims that I'll use for a rebuild. But tonight I'll first inspect, clean and relubricate the hub bearings, check if any bearing balls need to be replaced and whether the bearing surfaces are in good enough condition. I don't want to rebuild the wheels with bad hubs.

    The rims look badly abused, but the cogs and chain are in decent shape. So the damaged rims are probably caused by under-inflated tires on rough terrain or maybe a crash. The crank spider is bent and the left crank has been replaced at some point, maybe after a crash. But it seems the bike hasn't been ridden that much or that hard. So I have hope that the hubs will be just fine.
