Take the Maruishi CT-12 and treat the rust on the frame with naval jelly.
Tape, primer, paint in contrasting color the rust spots
Wax finished frame
Take bike to Peddler for proper quote, but anticipate:
new six speed cassette or substitute $40
chain $20
front spockets $2×10 =$20
labor, cables, etc. = $70
possibly different/new shifters =$30
removable front basket = $25
rear baskets/rack set = $35

$240 to turn the most comfortable bike I’ve ever ridden into a restored, maximum shopping bike.

Properly repainting the frame and baking the finish, including strip down, starts at $250. So that’s out.
