Worth is in the eye of the beer holder. Sadly most beer holders would not put much value in it but if you like riding it, it has that amount of value.

You need to post a good side picture if you want more info on what it is. Right now it's like trying to identify a person by a picture of a hand, torso, and leg.

Your Sekine is likely of early seventies vintage and of entry level quality. Sekine bicycles are/were Canadian made in Rivers Manitoba. For the most part, they were respected bikes.

As for value, where I live $50 tops and that would be on a good day. In some of the larger cities, perhaps $75 to $100 but only if it is in working condition.

I would shine up that pie plate, overhaul the bike and enjoy the ride. It's a bike that you don't mind leaving unlocked outside while you pop in for groceries or coffee, because, it's almost certainly still going to be there when you get out.
