Apollo bikes

I have 3 Apollo bikes in need of fixing. Not sure if I should bother or not. 2 of them are too small for me but they fit in my collection of 4. All are different.

The green Sport 10






The white one with fenders




The grey Custom one.
I couldn't get it out of its storage for now. There's about a dozen of bike surrounding it.

The white one has a bent fork so I would strip that one for parts. People always need fenders, those might be the best items on that bike.

The green bike looks pretty good, might not need anything more than a quick tuneup/cables/grease etc. I'd get that one running, it shouldn't cost much.

Can't tell anything about the gray bike. All I see in the pictures is the downtube/headtube lug and a rear derailer.

I can you tell my white one as a bent fork? I can't seem to be able to tell unless it's really bad.

The white bike also has a bent down tube, judging from the cracked paint. That bike is about as entry level as an Apollo gets. The green bike, once again an entry level model, is nice enough but not worth a great deal, in my opinion. The silver bike is probably a much older Apollo and likely has a Deeley headbadge attached. Those bikes were nothing special but they were unusually light when compared to other bikes in its category.
