Ritchey 'vintage'

I have a vintage circa 1990 Ritchey Saracen Vector, Mint condition, still has original tyres but now rotten. The bike has had a total of 2 hours use. Anyone know if its worth anything.
Additional info.
The bike needs a good clean before I take any photos. Here is some information from the bike - Team Saracen, Medium 19', 5098 series, Tange MTB, Chromoly Butted, Custom made Tubes, Parts ?1G2 or 162, Shimano SIS SL TY37. Hand made in UK. Colour- dark purple, black handlebars
I hope this makes sense.

I think we are missing or some branding is mixed up.
Post some images and we can take a stab.

Saracen (not Sacaren) is a UK bike manufacturer. Some of the components may be made by Ritchey. (People sometimes see a brand name on a saddle and think that that's the bike brand.) Drive-side pictures, among others, needed.
