Questions about 24-speed Aluminum Raleigh Sport

I have a few questions about a 6061 aluminum 24-speed Raleigh Sport my wife picked up. Like a LOT of Raleigh models, it is just called "Sport".
Someone gave it to her because she found the brifters awkward to use, and the shifter for the front chain rings was jamming frequently and would not drop down from the largest to the middle sprocket because the cable was too tight when the chain was on the biggest sprocket.

53cm 6061 aluminum alloy frame with steel forks.
Truvative crank with three chain rings.
Tektro double braking system.
Shimano 8-sprocket cassette, Shimano derailleurs & Shimano shifters.
Freedom 700C wheel set.

I would like to know when it was made.
Can anyone place it as to age and approximate value when new ?
I cannot find this little bike in the Raleigh catalog.
