I used to have that exact bike, but a different year. It was sweet! The only downside might be the fork. I raced mine for 2-3 years and rode the snot out of it. If there's no obvious damage to the frame/wheels and the fork looks okay, I'd see if the seller would take $200. Why would I buy it? It has the same geometry as the higher-end Specialized XC race bikes, and handles great. The frame is crazy stiff, and climbs well. For $250, and if things still work [shifters, brakes, etc.], it will work quite well with a 80mm or less fork, and it will be lighter than a Hardrock with better overall handling. Will the components last? Well, it is XT/XTR, so they should mostly work. The big question mark is the fork, but if it hasn't been abused, it should be fine. Good luck!
