It's sure an oddball. The rear derailleur seems to be a Suntour Trimec, which was never made or installed in any great numbers. The rear rack is hawt, though, and though the vestigial front mudguard looks as if it's cut down from a longer original unit, the rear seems to be intact and unmolested, which is nice. The cranks seem to be an early Sugino Mighty Tour unit, which is nice enough for almost anyone.
Is it worth anything? Well, it shows all the hallmarks of being a stable, comfortable ride, possibly French in origin. If it fits you, I'd say it has great value as an around-town bike.
