90's Ritchey MTB- P-Series? And Value?

Hello All,
I picked this up a bit ago. Seller said it was an eBay frame that he built up with I think some quality stuff. I think it's a P series from the 90s, but that's as far as I got. Also wondering about possible value.

Ritchey Logic Crank
Ritchey Stem and Bars
Ritchey Headset
Ritchey Rear and Rolf Front Wheel
Ritchey Tires
Ritchey Seatpost
Shimano XTR Shifters and Rear Derailleur
Shimano XT Front Derailleur
Avid V brakes
Rock Shox Indy C and I also have the original fork, red.

Thank you!

I'd put the original fork on before selling. Can't help with value, but it's a gorgeous bike and vintage mtbs are getting pretty popular so it should do well.

I would argue this was right on the brink of modernization, definitely not in the realm of the oversized, fully suspended, disk braked carbon behemoths of today.

The RS Indy and Avid v brakes might not really be inappropriate parts for that frame. Ritchey was still turning out bikes like that until at least 2000 or so I think. Incidently, I bumped into him and his very nice wife Tuesday night at the grocery store!

Ebay that fork and put the original back on -- hopefully its a threaded fork -- some flat bars would look a bit more period correct, --- but Ritchey (as previously stated) was definitely making framesets into the V brake era --- and the company is still selling steel frames although I doubt Tom is doing the torchwork anymore

Any idea what a reasonable price with the original fork might be? Or the model of the bike?

Wish you would have asked him why no one from his company ever responded to my note I sent them regarding the P.O.S. Ritchey seatpost I bought 20 years ago.

Probably because you're so unpleasant.

Check eBay SOLD auctions. It should give you a very good idea on value. A nicer model like this sold locally = large discount, at least in my market. In my area, it works great for buyers, sucks for sellers. Hopefully your market is better!

As far as model, I just don't have enough knowledge on Ritchey MTBs. I'd suggest a search via google images.
