Looking for info on a vintage? raleigh bike

This past weekend I dug out my childhood bike. I want to find out more about this bike. It was made by Raleigh, and has a logo on the chain guard, "Rampar". It has 20" wheels, fenders, a black oblong seat, coaster brakes, and is single speed. It has kind of an aqua blue paint finish. I called it a dirt bike when I was a kid, but I guess it could be referred to in other ways. Can anyone point me in a good direction for finding more info about this bike? I am thinking about refurbishing it, and want to establish some kind of a value and history for the bike before I jump in and do anything with it.

I'd suggest reposting in the "Classic and Vintage" section. Some of those guys are scary smart.
