Front derailleurs aren't that expensive to replace. Besides, any bike is a nice bike. They become great bikes when they are free. Enjoy the ride......

Very good point, free is awesome! I would not mind seeing a few more close up pictures of it. The brake caught my attention as I have a couple of these type stashed away. What speed is it? Also if you can get a picture of the rear derailler with the name on it I'll try to figure out what kind of Front Deariller you may need.

Looks like a Huret.

After looking at your pictures closely, with more time to myself as well, your bike doesn't have a regular freewheel/cassette but rather a single cog? In this case if you are for a single speed "fixie" type deal then it is definitely a different situation.
