No one absolute answer. Try going to bicyclebluebook.com and see what they say. The other route is to cruise the classifieds and see what similar rides are going for, but this won't be easy since not that many of this model were sold. A rule of thumb would be 50% of whatever it went for new, but this is pretty rough. there was a local MTB shop that had the frameset which they couldn't sell for $750 new. They finally built it up with 105 and sold it for something around $1,100.

Ultimately it's like buying a used car - it comes down to what two people will agree on and there are a lot of factors to throw in, not the least of which is the componentry and extras.
