Hi there, it's my first post. I scored two bikes at a yard sale last fall and since I'm in Michigan, they've been in storage for the winter. With spring here, I got them out and wondered if forum readers might be able to help me learn more about them.
The orange is a Schwinn Le Tour III, and the black one is a Flandria - and that's all I know. I'm not sure what pictures to take, so if something else would help you identify the bikes, please let me know.
The first picture of the Le Tour, from the other side so the drivetrain is visible, is the "standard" picture of a bike that shows the most information in a single picture. The Le Tour III looks like a 1978; here are the catalogpages.
The Flandria? Never heard of them. Not necessarily a bad thing, just not a popular brand. Could be from Canada or Europe.
If you're looking for valuation, if the LeTour is in good shape, you might get anywhere from... maybe $120 to $250 for it, depending on your market, and with the missing shifter levers replaced. This spring there seems to be more volatility and variation in what people are asking for bikes on Craigslist.

I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.
