Newbie here looking for information on an old Polish Zenit Fold Up Bike

Hello everyone. Found this forum while searching for information on an old Polish Zenit fold up bike. I am from the Buffalo, NY area and I am a picker. We usually do not obtain bikes and I am not very knowledgeable on them but the price was too good to pass on this handsome piece. It is a Zenit and the back of the seat says Romet. The serial number is 89.06. 297710. The warning label is written in Polish. So if anyone has any info on this such as the the year (I am thinking 1930's-40's), what it could be worth and what this particular bike would be called I would be very grateful. It appears to be in pretty good condition. The tires are flat and they have a weird nozzle so I cannot get them filled. They may have rot. The paint is in very good shape with no rust and very few chips. The metal areas on the handle bars and trim do have some tarnish, rust, patina. The breaks appears to work and it appears to peddle fine. Thanks for any feedback .. Tried to post attachments but is saying the file is too large. I will try and post a pic from my photobucket link. https://s294.photobucket.com/user/buffaloparrot/media/001_zps926ea1d5.jpg.html?filters[user]=71836593&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=0

Looks 70s or maybe early 80s. A picture of the other side of the bike and of the rear shifter would help us determine the age more closely. Pretty low end and not in great shape, you'd probably be lucky to see $50 out of it in its current state.

Here is the link/photo of the other side. Yeah, not an expert on these and that is why I came here. $50 is fine, we will more than double our money. Thanks for all the replies, I appreciate it. The link to the photo https://i294.photobucket.com/albums/m...psb0ccc49a.jpg
