Help a newbie price this bike: Schwinn X-Tra Lite

Hi, I am the owner of a vintage bicycle I am trying to sell. I'm afraid I have not taken good care of it in the two years I've had it, but it had been stored outside for a long time before it became mine for free. I'm looking for the year and maybe a cost estimate from you experts out there. I don't expect much. The tires are new (just flat), and the bike has not been used since it's last tuneup in 2013. It has rust on the chain and the paint is peeling, but it rides fine. The info I got from the bike is below. I'm also posting pictures:

Looks like a Le Tour mixte. Ask $100, be happy at $75.

$50-$75 would be a good guess. I would take $50 but donating it to a Goodwill and getting the Tax Write Off may be an option also, good luck either way.
