2005 in bikepedia is blue/silver and MSRP is $519. OK deal if in good condition I reckon.

Canti brakes and the fisher logo style put it mid 1990s at the latest. It's probably more like 15 years old.

After bikepedia consultation I think it's a titanium finish 1995 Marlin. You can score those for $70 or so in pretty good shape around here. But that thing looks virginal. Maybe I'd go $120 if I wanted a ready-to-ride vintage MTB.

Condition is nice, but that's a tough sell at $200. The market for mid-90's mountain bikes is almost non-existant. Lots of supply, very little demand.

I wouldn't go over $75 for this, and only if I really wanted it for some reason.
