Motobecane Mixte with Matching Painted Fender?

Hello Francophiles,

Anyone have any idea what this is? The seller says its a "classic motobecane ladies cruiser" . . . I haven't ever seen anything like it. Big cruiser seat - which could very well not be original - but it also has a rear painted matching fender.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks so much.

Entry level bike from the bike boom. Cottered cranks, steel rims, french sized parts. Appears to be in very good shape, depending on the condition of the fork.

Thanks for all your help! Confirming what I suspected . . . not worth it.

Thanks to all for their time.
