That bicycle is entry level and not really worth spending a "wad of cash" on. You can do so much better and for not a great deal more money.

If you are going to spruce up an old road bicycle, start with something worthy of the effort and, eventually, capable of delivering decent ride quality. The Azuki will never offer good ride quality, in my opinion.

So, learn a bit about Vintage Bicycle Quality and take that information, coupled with information pertaining to How to Find Vintage Bicycles, and you will be much better prepared to make a "good deal" call in the field when presented with an opportunity to purchase a bicycle at a good price.
