(2) 1970 Iverson Road Runners, What should I do?

I picked up two 1970's Iverson Road Runners yesterday evening. Both have quite a bit of surface rust.
One is complete while the other is missing the chain guard and one pedal. I'm wondering if they're worth restoring or if there is a market for them in the condition they are in. I'll post up pictures later tonight .
Thanks!

$3.70

Might be worth more if posted in the "What is my bike worth?" forum.

But I doubt it.

You might get $10 from someone who restores Stingrays. They might use some parts or fix it and sell it whole. But in it's current condition, not worth much. Iverson is not known as a quality badge.

The only things of some value on this bike that could be potentially saved and resold are the plastic parts: saddles, bar grips and tubes. For 2 bikes if they clean nice, that's about $30-40 on ebay max.

Rusty, off-brand, girl's musclebikes = worthless 99.9% of the time. This is an example - handlebars are bent too.

Dump it in oxalic acid, fix them up, put a simple rattle-can paintjob on them, and give 'em to the kids in the neighborhood.
