Mid 80's Free Spirit / Sheffield bicycle - need approx. value for cancer benefit

We have a silent auction fundraiser coming up Feb. 5th for our 2 year old granddaughter and my mother-in-law asked me if I wanted this bike. It had been hanging on the wall in her garage since the 80's. She road it once or twice and that was it. A local bike shop put new tires on it - the old ones were pretty bad... and now I just need a general idea of what it's worth.

It's labeled "Sheffield" on the frame and then "Free Spirit" in the front. Everything but the tires are original. I can provide more information if needed... I'm just not sure what it would be so please let me know. Please see photos below:


thanks! Tina

Not worth very much. Its a low end Sears bike (department store quality). Might have a market value of $25 to $50 max. Paint looks immaculate, which helps value quite a bit. Rust on handlebars and rims hurts.
