Fair price for a Gary Fisher?

I was wondering if anyone here could give me an idea what a fair price for this bike is. I mainly ride road bikes and am pretty clueless when it comes to MTB. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

As far as I know its a 1999 Gary Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo thats been ridden less than 40 miles.

that would have been maybe a $600 bike as I recall. It looks showroom clean, but it is coming up on 10 years old. I would not pay over $200 for it. I am not sure I would even pay that.

I sold a 97 GT LTS2 that was $1600 new plus a $400 girvin front end that was in great shape for like $400 last year on ebay.

based on the spec and the age i would say 200-300... it looks great and should sell fast, but I think once you get past 300 or so people would start looking to buy a new bike. i say post online 225 reserve 325 buy it now. hope you get lucky

You might want to consider putting on your local craigslist...it's free, and you won't have to deal with shipping it. Around here, a bike like that would be listed for...$300-$400+...not sure that they actually sell for that much, though.
