The new tires are 26 x 1.75. Should be OK. Good idea. You can also call Nashbar and ask about it. They are pretty good.

It is easy. It was "now" at the time, and most kids didn't think 3-speed Raleigh's and balloon tire PeeWee Herman were cool. The uncoolest thing to do was put ape hanger stingray bars and a banana...

Then they got involved with the resurrected Raleigh name in the 80's, and had some really nice bikes. They had already brought in re-branded Raleigh 3-speeds (the Sportsman) in the 60's, though.

Good choice. Nashbar's sale prices are also not easy to beat, so if you got a deal on it you are ahead of the game. No decals...looks nice, but low key. I have a similar bike, and it is quick and...

Don't give up on the Belt saddle. Probably from a mid-1970's Fuji. You may need to treat the leather, but worth keeping. They can be real comfortable after awhile. BTW, Cool "C&V" grandpa. Looks like...

58cm to 62cm. I usually prefer a larger frame with a longer top tube. For loaded touring I'll take a 58cm frame.

That is a really low-end bike. For short distances a hybrid might work out better for you. If you want to do some real riding this bike isn't the one. It will wear you out on the road.
