This is a lower end Bridgestone but the Grant Peterson era B'stones are all nice bikes and command a premium in the marketplace. That said, the market for vintage MTBs and hybrids which took off during COVID (everyone wanted a bike) has come crashing down, at least in central Iowa where I live. This bike is exceptionally clean and looks sharp. I'd value it at $200-$300 depending on location and how patient you are. That's more, IMO, than a bike of this quality is worth but the B'stone name commands a premium and you did a very nice job of fixing this bike up.

As a point of comparison, I recently picked up two better quality bikes (a mid 90s Specialized Stumpjumper and a '93 lugged Trek 750) for less than the value I suggested for this bike. I'm also seeing a lot of nice bikes on FB marketplace and Craigslist which are not moving which is why I suspect the market is down.

I have seen a few XO5's sell in the $175-250 range recently. The green is nice and agree with above often get more than their "value" due to name.

I would say $200 as is were is value wise. Rally nice bike in great condition only things I don't like are the horrible looking stem and front cable hanger a nice stem with a cable through would really help this bike.
