The subject bicycle bears the livery of the Panasonic-Raleigh pro team. This indicates mid-1980s. Raleigh marketed bicycles with this livery in several grades, in order to capitalize on the popularity of the team with a very broad spectrum of consumers. It is obviously not the top grade version and based on the components appears to be the entry level Team Cadet 10 marketed to the novice rider.

I will defer to others on value, as I do not have an appreciation of the used bicycle market in Poland.

Well of course it's worth something - to someone. What a silly question

How much? I don't have a clue, honestly.

IMHO the tallness of the frame limits its value as much as anything else. Looks like you'd have to be well over 6 feet to be comfortable on the thing. It narrows the range of potential riders. The paint looks excellent!

mid 80's

Nice clean example, if I had it in the shop it would be $120-$160 depending on condition of the tires and cables,
good back to school bike for a long legged student.

If you are 8 feet tall it certainly has value.

Bike in question is a team cadet with the "aerospace contour" frame in 64cm, which means about 1985/86. With an upgraded crank too, because the original was rubbish.

Would suit someone 5'10" or above, someone 5'9" is going to be resting his balls on the top tube. It's no fancy frame tubing but that makes no difference, it's a good bike that will ride well.

In polish money I've no idea. In English about 150.
