Kona Kikapu deluxe fits your description and is 27.3 lbs. A little over 1500, though.

you could probably find a 2003 enduro comp for 1500, that is when the 04's hit the shops.

wheelworld.com has the Enduro FSR comp listed on it's site for $1249.99. I'm not sure what year it is though (either 2002 or 2003)

if shipping isnt outrageous Thats a great price, even for a 2002 (its almost $1000 off retail) But you would still need a shop to true the wheels and probably some other work as well, which would add to the price.

Edit: its not the comp thats $1249, its the base model, which isnt that great of a price, too bad

Although this caught my eye!
