Name that Mountain Bike!

Hey Everyone, New to the forum here. I came across a mountain bike and I am having trouble figuring out exactly what I have. Most of the stickers and labeling has ripped off, but what is left says: Diamonback racing, ugp, and Easton custom project aluminum. I am very new to mountain biking so I don't have much knowledge on frames, components, and such. Just wondering if this bike would be worth spending some money to get in rideable shape? Thanks in advance!

In a similar boat. I have found a Trek on CL but I am not entirely sure what model it is. Any help would be appreciated!

That is a old late 90s Trek Y frame y-11 y-22 something. That one looks to be one of the carbon versions but it isnt super easy to tell from the pics. It is a very highend bike with XT/XTR bits but it is also extremely outdated. It is kind of hard to go wrong for $200 if it fits and if the fork, shock, and drivetrain bits work if you are just getting started. You would be better off with a hardtail if you are going that old but again it is only $200. I have a guy on my local craigslist that has three of those things and has been posting them for months for $800-$1200, he is never going to sell them. Not unusual to see soembody get $300-400 out of the higherend ones though.
