Your eyes are not missing anything. The bike is priced adequately.

The subject bicycle appears to be a 1992 Citi Sport. It's a hybrid model with 700C wheels, cantilever brakes ans dhould have a triple cranket. A drive side photo would nice to postively identify the drive train components but I believe it's Shimano 70GS, 18 sped Hyperglide based on what I can see of the brakes and left crankarm. The 1992 frame was spec'd as hi-tensile steel and it's claimed weight was 29.5 lbs. At the time, this was the bottom of the Nishiki adult range and MSRP would have been around $250 US. It is a decent, basic bicycle, suitable for light recreational cycling and commuting.
