That is a pretty steep price for a low end bike from the 90s. It is Shimano Tourney (which is at the absolute bottom of Shimano's range), the frame is generic chromoly (which isn't terrible in it self) with a hi-ten fork (pipe steel) MSRP new in the 90s was in the $250-300. I get the used market is hot (usually because bike is stolen) but paying near MSRP for a that just ain't worth it. You can usually find such better mountain bikes and hybrids for the same price with some more quality components or buy a new bike and have all the warranties and support behind it.
