86 Centurion Ironman Expert & a 80s Peugeot

I have 3 bikes I'd like to sell locally (Charlotte) and I'm not sure what a fair price might be for them.

First is a 80s steel Schwinn I was gonna turn into a fixie or 3 spd. Never got around to it.

Next is a 80s steel Peugeot. Fairly low end / entry level model I think. Still, Peugeots are relatively uncommon so I grabbed it when I had the chance.

Best of the bunch is a Centurion Ironman Expert. Shimano 600 components.

All 3 are in rough shape and would need TLC but are perfect for any bike geek who likes to tinker.

Thoughts? Thanks :

I won't comment on the other two but if you really clean up the Centurian, put some brakelever hoods and tape on it you may get $200 for it. otherwise i think you would be lucky to get $100 for it

+1 I would focus on the Ironman, get it perfect, and you could get $225 for it. As is, maybe $100. Needs tires, bar tape, some touch up work, etc. The folks that like to tinker in general want and get a substantial discount. Most buyers want bikes that look good and are ready to ride.

You could probably also get $100 for that Peugeot, buyers like them. That Schwinn has minimal value in its current condition.
