Raleigh sprite vintage?

I have just acquired this vintage seeming bike. Is a 6 speed Raleigh, with just the name "sprite" on the top bar. Was wondering the year and value but can't seem to find anything online. Serial number is "RN4 07334".

Any info would be appreciated! Thank you!
​​​​​​
Edit: also has a tag saying "carbospec 45-11" under the seat.

The correct place for an evaluation is here.
A ballpark guess is it's a late model Sprite and it will have a value dependant on condition and utility. It has no collectible premium but if it's a solid rider in nice shape, maybe it can fetch a hundred or two, depending on the market you live in.

Likely a 1984 Canadian model, given 6 speed, "carbo-spec", and serial #

​​​​​​Okay, what did I just buy?
