Any help with this Velo Sport bicycle?

Hey,
So I've yet to find any information throughout the thousands of sites I've searched through.
I'm looking for any information on this bicycle.
When it was made, today's worth etc...
It's a Velo Sport Canam kids bike.
Somebody was throwing it away but instead let me have it for my son a few years back.
I believe it has all original parts.
It's a 20" 5 speed with shimano sis gears. Frame says made in Canada with CarboLite tubing (frame colour: Orange-ish Yellow?) Rims say made in USA (rigada)
Seem to be in excellent shape. Rides great.

Please respond with any helpful information.

Kind regards

<<trying to figure out how to upload photo 🤔>>

Sorry mate I have never heard of them.
There is also a thread on photos.
Kids bike with SIS are not generally worth anything.
Welcome aboard.

Velo Sport was a Canadian brand owned by Procycle, who also manufactured Peugeot under license, hence the Carbolite tubing decal. The presence of SIS would make make it no earlier than late 1980s and the Velo Sport brand was retired in 2001. Posting some pictures may help.
