I think the question is ambiguous. Isn't "Esta bicicleta pertenece al vecino" correct?
This question relates to:Spanish lesson "Contracted masculine singular articles: al and del"

Yes, you are right. This sentence: "Esta bicicleta pertenece al vecino" is also correct for "This bike belongs to the neighbour". However we used this one which means the same: "Esta bicicleta es del vecino", which means literally "This bike is the neighbour's" and here it needs a "de +el" = del.
I hope this helped.
