2,700 bikes given to the needy in 2011! Then again, 2,700 in 2012.
WOW these are pretty. pairs like this come up often, unfortunatly unless they are very old I don't think you can retire on them. the biggest problem is usually the people interested either want the pair and live too far away or only want one of them

Wow - these two are a gorgeous pair. They look like they've never been ridden. The fact that both still have fenders and chain guards increase their value exponentially. And if the seats are Brooks originals, you've really got two goodies on your hands. You should be able to date the bikes by checking the rear hub.
In a congested college town like Boston, where everyone wants a bike, I'd say either is worth about 150+ sold separately. If you put a basket and bell on the ladies bike, and throw it on craigslist, you should be able to get 200 or so come spring. The men's frame is best to be posted in Raleigh forums as it is near show-quality, despite being a lower-end model. Could be worth 200 there as well.
I don't know the Rochester market or if you're interested in the ebay route, but if you just need some cash quickly, list them individually for 150 each or 200 for both and go about your life knowing their in happy hands and you've got a nice little wad of cash in your pocket and wont have to spend more of your free time trying to sell these bikes.
