Pretty much any LBS branded bike in OK condition is worth $30. The questions are more like what are you looking for, and is it your size? Doubt it will last long. But it is a low end bike.
Do you have the time/tools/aptitude/interest in doing the rehab? If you have a bike shop do the work, you will be upside down on the bike value wise. French BB and cottered cranks are always "interesting" to work on, and can usually be serviced. Replacement of these parts can be costly, due to the somewhat unique and obsolete sizing. But if you want to keep what is there, that should not be a problem.
