1984-85 Raleigh Mountain Tour "Rocky" times two.

I was recently given this pair of Raleigh Rockys and one is a little small for me and the other is large. Nice bikes in decent condition. The smaller is missing its bullhorn bars and original pedals. I find the reach a little long on both of them. Original Raleigh Mountain tour tires are still good. Sumo alloy rims, Sakae CR Suntour RD,FD and thumbies.
I will likely be trying to find a home for them, any idea of their value?

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 produced MTB's. I would say you could get in the $125-$150 range for these. As a buyer bikes like these are a great value.

It seems the "Rocky" was a Canada only model. Makes sense as a "crested butte" would be something you park on a chair to an average Canadian.
