The less than ideal rear suspension design on these bikes was replaced by better designs that don't have massive pedal bob, so the bike would not be worth a lot to me as a rider and they don't sell for much. But the really high end ones can be great to strip for parts, like this one: https://appleton.craigslist.org/bik/3206430946.html

The bike in your OP, I would put a value of $200 max on.

Yeah, I'd say around $200 would be a relatively quick sale. You could maybe get $300 if you were patient and diligent about posting it for sale on MTBR or other class MTB forums. Unfortunately, that's pretty far down the pecking order of joshua frames with the LX rear derailleur, so there's a bit of a ceiling to what you can get out of it. The Joshua with XT or XTR will always be more desirable.

The thumbshifters on there are definitely not the OEM, and while the cable lockout for the rear shock it cool, it looks like the cable routing for the front and rear derailleurs have been swapped around.

Don't sell the HooKoo, ride it. IMO the HK is a better all around bike then the Joshua. My HK was upgraded to XT long ago and there are times that I will ride that over my Sugar 3+. I guess I should back up a bit, keep the HK if it is steel. I forget that they made those in Aluminum as well.
