Opinions needed

A friend is selling his 99 Fisher Joshua X for $200. The only problem is that the fork (Duke) has some kind of leak somewhere. Even then I have another fork I could use. Everything else is cherry.
What kind of riding would I be able to do with this? Is not a good idea to try 4-5ft drops with it? I think I'd pretty much be using it for very A-XC. Everything is stock... It was garaged for a LONG time. Would you guys take it or leave it?

Leave it. It won't survive the beating you intend to put on it. That plus I always HATED that suspension design
