That bike isn't a great candidate for your project. It is a great candidate to tune up and ride the routes you want to do. Enjoy it for what it is.

Rocky was the lowest on the Mountain Tour line that Raleigh introduced. The higher end ones like the Crested Butte only go for around $200. Unfortunately there isn't a lot of value in vintage mass...

Post a thread about it on this website (http://thecabe.com/forum/). The folks over at the cabe have a lot of knowledge on this type of bike and can probably help you figure out what you have.

It is leather. It will have flaws. I would ride it and not think twice about it. After a few months it will have more flaws. Comfort is the primary objective with a Brooks saddle.
