What's so strange about that? Most every company makes a wide selection of models ranging from about $250-$3000. Just like toyota making cars that range from $12,000 to $50,000.

Wow. That thing is super clean for how old it is. Not a bad bike really, pretty much like a cannondale super-V from that era. If you can get the price down it might be worth looking into.
