Looks like a nice one for sure. In my market, nice rigid frame MTBs have minimal value unfortunately (I have about a dozen to sell right now: Gary Fisher, several Trek, Specialized, Lotus, Univega, Fuji, etc) They will sell come riding season to the basic recreational rider.
You are in a better market so that will help. Around here, vintage rigid mountain bikes go for between $100 to $175, depending on condition and component level. This assumes cromoly frame, alloy rims, LBS brand, good components and ready to ride. I consider such MTBs to be the best bargain for a recreational end user today.
