Trading a 1983 Nishiki Olympic for a mystery Raleigh?

Hey guys, first post.

I just recently nabbed an '83 Nishiki Olympic for super cheap, but the cheap price clouded my judgement and it's way too small for me. I've got an offer to trade it for this Raleigh which is much closer to my size:

road bike | road | City of Toronto | Kijiji

Seller says that it's a Grand Prix, but I can't find any Grand Prix's that look the same online. My guess is it's a mid to late '70's model? But which one?

Toronto's bike market is way over-inflated sometimes, so it's hard to tell if the price reflects the true value. Any opinions?

Raleigh appears to be 1983-1985 graphics. During that era, Raleigh sold off the US Division and some of the frames were built in Taiwan. YMMV, as you are in Canada.
