Depends on where you are located, and your marketing capability.

Rigid frame mountain bikes are probably the best value out there right now - for the buyers. For you as a seller that's not so good. CA would definitely be better than AL; but I can't imagine even with the Paramount name and being [from the one photo's appearance] in good shape that it would fetch $150 here.

I could see $200 with better driveside photos and a better description. Condition looks good, LX, rigid (most suspension forks from the early 90s are either totally shot or just bad to begin with.)

I would tend to agree with the $150 - $200 price.
