Came up on this vintage Miyata - What do I do with it?

A few months ago my mom's friend was cleaning out her storage unit and gave me a bike. I've been told it's a Koga Miyata 1974 Women's Touring Bike. But I'm having a lot of difficulty researching this particular model.

It seems to have all original parts except the handlebars, which are Raleigh. It's in excellent condition, considering how old it is.

The front metal decal reads "Miyata Made in Japan" Serial number C262986.

The frame is far too heavy for me. I'm moving to a big city and will need to get it on and off public transit regularly. And while I just love this bike, I should get something lighter. I'm looking to sell it, and was wondering how much something like this is worth. Or what it is, exactly.

I'm taking it down to a bike shop, but rather then run around to a bunch of them I really want to get a second internet opinion before I go. The bike in question is the green one in front.
