Specilized Rockhopper

I have an old Specialized Rockhopper in small size. Needs some love but solid overall. Alivio components. I don't know the year but it's early. Approximate value? Thanks!
UPDATE--1989 model year

I sold a clean Rockhopper frame for $65, it was a very good deal I thought for the buyer. I would think if it is serviced and clean perhaps $225, maybe a little more depending on your location.

This is well into the 1990s as Alivio wasn't even introduced until 1994. However, the 1994 Rockhopper used STI so, as BG states, this appears to be the 1995 model. It may present a lot better once cleaned up but as it sits, it's a sub-$100 US bicycle.

That is a 1995 as Bianchigirl says. I had that same exact bike.

With that said, the components look shot and the bike looks like it needs some work. $50-$100 is about right.

Also of note, those Alivio cranks may be under Shimano recall
