Worth rebuilding?

Got an older specialized hard rock. .. pretty trashed. The fork is pretty dead. Was wondering if it's worth it to spend the money on new parts and put it together or should I just pitch it?

IMO, you would get a better deal putting that money into getting a used bike.

There is a technical name for that bike; it's called a parts donor.

Agree with others, don't rebuild, just not worth it.
