Getting the urge to fix up a not-so-modern bike or three... Have the opportunity to buy all of these today... Looking for a little more info on what kinds of Schwinns might be in this package, not so much concerned with them being worth anything (unless of course, they are lol)
The red one is a Schwinn Breeze 3-speed. The other 4 are various Stingray-type bikes. Some people think the Stingrays are kind of valuable (sometimes ask as high as $900 on Craigslist) although I have no idea why. I would pass on the 4 and pay maybe $40-80 for the Breeze.
I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

yeah for some reason i had thought the stingrays were valuable too... what i really wanted to do was build a cruiser bike with the schwinn stik shifter, literally no experience or knowledge about those weird little schwinn sticks though

The green ray may be worth some money because it is complete, the others look like they have parts missing/replaced which is the big value killer for muscle bikes.
A lot of people on this forum, myself included, are not fans of these types of bike but there are lots of people who are. So it may be worth still picking up whichever of them is in the best condition.
You can look on the " auction site " to see what Sting-Ray bikes bring, now. Be sure to compare each model, exactly. I am not familiar enough with them to give a value. In my area, the red bike in great condition, would sell for $150.
