Old single speed Hercules

Hi, Today I bought a single speed Hercules bike for $40.
I had the intentions of putting a motor on it.
I took it to the local bike shop to check for tire/tube prices and to have the front wheel repaired. He said it "might" be a $150-$200 bike.

I Just want a second opinion before I touch anything on it.

Here's some pics.

Fairly low end single speed utility bike from 60's with the rough cosmetics worth about $100 in good working order. Having brought and sold a lot of older bikes I found that I had to all but give away lesser British SS and 3speeds.
