    X2. Don't spend too much money on an old bike if you really want to hit the dirt with it...technology has come a LOOONG way.

    Like Nate said, don't go nuts upgrading parts, but that bike is definitely worth restoring and riding. I have a Rockhopper that's a couple years younger, use it to commute every day. The original bottom bracket finally died after 20 years, if I would have serviced it every five years or so it would probably have lasted forever!
