There will be other opportunities

Unless you are entertaining this as a “parts bike” I recommend that you wait for something nicer.

This model was mass produced: there will be others.

Perhaps $100 to $150 in its current condition, based on your photographs.

Someone would need to invest in a complete overhaul, new tires, and possibly new cables to make a usable vehicle.

The total cost is too high.

The French orange painted bicycle with the 3 tubes Columbus sticker looks like an Arctic Cat made by Stella.

Comparable to the Stella SX-76 but with downmarket derailleurs.
