I would try to negotiate a bit with them. Bottom line is that they have lost money on that bike holding it for 4+ years. On the other hand, this tells me that they are the type that will not negotiate or they would not have it all these years later.

I would walk in with $800 or $850 in cash and say 'this is what I am willing to spend - taxes included' and say take it or leave it. I think at $800 is it is good buy.

Truth is you could find something similar on ebay for around $800 or less if you took some time. You could find something that has not been ridden much at all and thus is about the same. Plenty people buy MTB and hardly ever ride them.
