Was offered 500 not long back and turned it down just because after riding as many bikes as i do of all disciplines i still don't think there is anything out there of this quality for that money..its just about engineering perfection for an xc bike of that type!
,,,and its SO light!
It is a Torus frame isn't it? Looks like it, but the dropouts look different to any I have seen, could be the picture though.
It's worth over £500 in parts. Probably more on eBay depending on what proof you have of its previous life.
If you list the spec it would help.
A Torus frame, The MTrax Elite 450. original Spec to be found here on this chart;

but I think the fact that it's a pedigree race bike as ridden by a Champ rider adds to the value, and it has been customised too by the looks of it, according to the said Rider.
For what its worth, http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/271120183307? ... 1423.l2649
Frame ONLY went for over £200 with a dodgy paint job and no marks or decals.
Another Frame set with Sids stem and bars (no wheels or brakes or gears or anything) went for £499 recently! on eBay.
a RSP 600 is on sale here for £300 - thats Frame and Forks ONLY.
I bought a RSP Ti Frame here, with headset only for £180 - and that was because the seller decided to let it go to ME personally for that much - otherwise it'd have been at the £250 mark.
A Dynatech Decade

Frame and Forks went for £350
And my RSP 350 frame with a new shock, Magura Phaons, stem and bars went for £280.
So judging by this, I'd say it'll be worth much more to a collector, and if bought by a collector. And if sold as a whole bike to an enthusiast here it'll still be worth MUCH more than the paltry sum of £250 for this complete bike as someone mentioned above.
Just the stem is worth close to £70 or so (I just paid £75 for one)
I'd put it on SALE here for however much you think it's worth, with some history and pics and same on ebay as a Buy It Now - as mentioned above.
This is deserving of a buyer, but I can't understand why you want to sell it, I'd keep this forever!
Just for the record, this same model is to be found in the National Cycle Museum
And finally, barrie Clark with one;
