Help me identify this Haro

A friend asked me about this bike...it's a Haro "Extreme Comp" but she has no idea about the year, components, etc.
A quick google search didn't provide me much. I'm not familiar with Haro - what year is it? Does it have any value?

Thanks for the link. I don't think that's a switchblade, in the photo one leg says "Manitou" and it looks like it's got suspension...I'll have to go get a look at it in person.

Forks came later. Manitou 3's came out in like 94. U-brakes were phased out in around 91.

Other Non-OEM stuff:
Pedals are odyssey twisted plastic platforms
saddle is WTB, don't remember seeing wtb saddles until around 95
Matching salsa skewers (all 3) are a nice touch, but not OEM.
I see a King headset.
Easton e90 (?) risers are a definite upgrade- risers were still in the realm of hybrids until the mid 90s.
Maybe a thompson stem?
Front tire looks brand new, back looks ridden. Look like z-max tires to these eyes.
Front brakes look like XTR, but cranks are... xt? Deore?
Bottom RD pulley is red, bullseye?

All told, Yes there is some value there, the fork is easily swapped out (or rebuilt). The elastomers are most likely shot, might be worth taking out the shish kabob skewers in there to have a look at them.

You could probably get $250-350 from this depending on how patient (and firm) you're willing to be. Those XT thumbshifters are very nice and reasonably desired. To get the most out of this, you'd do well to part it out.
