1989 Rockhopper Comp - Fair selling price?

I have decided that I'm going to break down and buy me a new bike with with my tax rebate. I have an 89 Specialized Rockhopper Comp and a 90 Raleigh Eclipse commuter style hybrid that I'm going to sell to help ease my sticker shock.

I don't normally pay attention to prices and models and so forth so I don't really have an idea as to what I could get for them. To stay on topic I'm asking about my rockhopper here and my commuter in the proper forum.

The Rockhopper is an 18 inch frame with a 29 inch standover. It is almost all original including the toe clips, shifters, brakes, wheels and tires but in reasonably good shape for a 20 year old bike that has actually been used. I do all my own adjustments and have kept everything in working order. I have used it mostly for park bike trails but it does have moderate paint chips from being laid over and transported etc. so it is not 100% "Like new" condition.

I have seen some really trashed specialized bikes with asking prices more than the new bike I want but, being almost 20 years old, I'm not sure if this one would be considered "Outdated" or "Classic", It can be a fine line between them.

Any input about what I should ask/expect would be appreciated

Donate it. Im slowly donating all my old parts because my new rig and parts are slowly coming in. Have a heart, pay it forward so that other people can enjoy the sport too.
