Value range for 93 Stumpjumper in good condition?

Hi all,
I came across a 1993 steel specialized stumpjumper in good condition with original equipment. I realize I should have pics, but none available, sorry. Just wondering in what range I should be expecting to spend. Thanks!

I see quality mountain bikes from that era for around $100. People just don't appreciate vintage high quality mountain bikes in my opinion.

$75-$100 is about right if it's in very good condition.

And that would mean good tires, grips, saddle, brakes and it is lubed up, too. IE; Ready to ride.

If it is not, $20-$50.

That's a really sweet bike. I have the 94 Rockhopper double butted steel frame, its very light and the Stumpjumper is lighter. I would estimate the Stumpy will weigh in well under 25lbs, but I'm estimating. If that was any other high end MTB, I'd agree with the estimates above because they're correct about any other brand. But for some reason, I've seen old Stumpys go for more on ebay. If you can get it for $100, and if it's as light as I think it is, with original components (93 can be found on bikepedia.com) I'd grab it, regardless of the condition of such things as tires, chain etc. If the owner insists on a higher price, check the frame size and make sure it fits you. If it does, you have to decide how high you would go. Once it hits something like $150, $175, that's getting pretty high.
I know I'm differing from the popular numbers, but I tried to buy an old Stumpy not long ago and finally settled for the Rockhopper cause they were all pricey.
EDIT: You didn't say if it had a suspension fork or not or if the head is 1 1/8. Those factors could raise the price.
