Am I in the Ballpark?

I'm trying to streamline our family's bike inventory down from 12 So, the first bike I'm planning to sell is a GT Tequesta, circa 1990, that neither the wife nor I like to ride. Nothing against the bike, it's in great shape, it just doesn't quite fit and we don't go off the pavement that much. We have it on CL right now:

So tell me: is that a reasonable price, or are we way out of the ballpark? there's an ad right below ours for a Scott hardtail, and they're asking $300. TIA.
P.S. I posted this in the MTB forum and got no responses in 4 days, so I feel justified in re-posting.

It seems slightly expensive to me but then again bikes may be going for more money where you are. That Scott bike has Deore LX components which came on scads of $550+ bikes back in the day. Your Tequesta looks like it's in fantastic condition though, so I'd say keep asking $200 but don't rule out taking a little less for it. There was a slightly newer Tequesta for sale here recently with a lower end Rock Shox fork for $125, but it looked pretty rough in the picture.

It's been tough to find anything for a comparison. I see a lot of lower end bikes, and lots of project bikes, but even on e-bay I couldn't get a straight-up match. So that price is a slightly educated guess, but it may have to come down as I've had no interest so far.
