Older Motobecane Mirage

I received this bike from a neighbor as he was moving. I had forgot about it in the basement for the last few years, and wondering if it has an value. From what I can tell it's a 12 speed Motobecane that my neighbor said he brought over from Europe. It has an authentic looking head badge on the front. There is a light on the front and rack on the back, but both have the Schwinn name, so I assume they were put on as accessories by the previous owner. I've taken these pics, and can take more if needed. I'm totally out of the loop when it comes to bicycles so I thought I'd try here for some help. Much appreciated!

I wonder who put that rack on?

This routing is rather different

Thanks for the replies! I had no clue it was worth anything.

I assume the rack was put on by the previous owner - it certainly does not match the bike. As for the routing I'm not sure what you mean.
