Lots of good advice here! I agree with the donor bike approach, it's not difficult to find late 80's MTBs at yard sales for well under $100. A bit of patience and you might find a Deore XT level bike.

I've got less than $300 in my Rockhopper, and it's only a paintjob away from looking really nice (it won't be getting one though...)
