$125?
I cant tell a whole lot from the pics that sets it apart from 80s/90s rigid atbs.

Looks like a new Tourney rear derailleur. And new tires.
The friction shifters look like a model from Suntour that ratchets.

Nothing spectacular that stands out to me, but it looks clean overall.

I believe the Rocky was a Canadian only version of the Mountain Tour series of Raleigh MTBs made in the mid 80's. It was the lowest model. The rear derailleur is a replacement.

It would make a bomb proof apocalypse for someone. Unfortunately, old MTB's don't bring much. I would expect around $100 to right person.

Yes, thats about what I figured. Its a tig welded friction shifting double crank path bike. I think I would have a tough time selling it for $125 around me, even if it were completely rebuilt and tuned. Thats based on what is currently available for $125 and also based on the asking prices for what is available at this bike's level.

I guess I will to have to keep and add it to my Raleigh collection.
The geometry of the frame and the front fork make it pleasure to ride.

Very nice looking bike. Tires look new. These old Raleigh chromoly steel bikes provide the best rides imho.
