If you have a local cycle shop I suggest you give them a chance because with the state of online sales, if you don't use local businesses they will be lost.

Failing that both ebay and Amazon offer a great many cycle parts...

I have taken bikes to Thrift Shops (Value Village, etc.), and to recycling depots when they have provisions to donate them to various charities. In my area, migrant farm workers often get them. I think this info depends on your geographic area.

If it's a quill stem, you have to loosen the bolt at the top of the stem, and then tap it (the bolt) with a hammer to release it. There will be a line on the stem portion that goes into the head tube of the bike that tells you how high the stem can safely go. You will likely get to this maximum setting before the cables are stressed. Tightening the stem back in the head tube is just aligning it and then using the wrench again. There are Park Tools videos (and others) on Youtube that show this procedure, and cable replacement, if you need it.

Follow this link: You will need to know the serial number of the bike, and this is also explained on this website.

The brake handles have each have a switch button that must be pressed for the motor to work. (Actually what happens is that when you pull the break lever it unpresses the button so the motor won't work against the brakes). Just tape the switch down for the time being. Electric Bikes Northwest and David Hawkins might be able to help you with bike parts. I've gotten some parts from him for my La Free Sport. Very few bike shops know anything about these bikes. Good Luck! Dennis

You need to determine the brand/model of hub and then search for parts diagrams or repair procedures. Hubs are not specific to certain bikes, and the hub may change on a model from year to year. Post a pic of your hub, especially any part with writing on it, on a BMX site, or go to a bike shop to ID the hub.

No, they do not - a chain tool has to be used. Also, a 10 speed (2 gears in front, 5 in the rear) would be quite old, so the rear gear cluster (freewheel) will be worn as well as the chain, and also takes a specialized tool to remove. Replacing both on a Huffy will cost more than the bike is worth.

First, some terminology - the small cogs in the back are the higher gears. They will take you farther per pedal revolution, but not necessarily faster, as it's hard to pedal the high gears as fast.

As far as your problem there are multiple causes. The most common is friction in the shift cable. The rear derailleur shifts to the small cogs with spring pressure when you move the shift lever. It won't move well if the cable is binding. The second commone cause is the derailleur being bent inward from the bike falling on the right side. That will also cause the derailleur to move too far when shifting to the large cog in the rear - a very expensive problem if it goes into the spokes. The least common problem is misadjustment. ALL of the fixes must be done properly. The best option if available is to get help at a bike co-op or from a knowledgable friend. Otherwise take it to a shop for diagnosis and repair.

As you gave no info other than serial number it would take a lot of effort to answer your question. It's better that you do it yourself, as we don't know what you want to know and you'll find other interesting info along the way.
Google "Schwinn serial numbers" (or date code) and you will find your answer.
