A pal of mine came home the other day with a '94 Scott Team Racing. His wealthy cousin was having a garage sale and just gave it to him. He doesn't ride, and I'm a road bike guy who knows squat about MTBs. I cleaned it up and gave it a general once-over; it's in real nice mechanical and cosmetic shape. The Manitou forks are working well, and the Deore rapid-fires are still firing rapidly. It's got pretty new tires, a Specialized computer, Zefal pump, and an under-saddle wedge bag with a nice tool kit.

He wants me to sell it for him, but I don't have a good idea what the going price for one of these might be, and I could only find one in eBay's closed auctions. It sold for just over $100, but that seems sort of low to me for the level of components and condition of this one but like I said, I'm out of my element.

What would be a realistic asking price on one of these? It's almost exactly like this one, except for the Manitou forks.

Bikes depreciate in value pretty quickly. $100 is not an unreasonable price for an 11 year old bike. The component technology has become quite refined in the last 5 years. Deore is mediocre grade stuff. Nobody runs cantilever brakes anymore. I wouldn't hope for anything above $200.
