Assuming you do not need 6 3-speeds, so its a buy to flip, I would put the price relatively low. Depending where you live, 3 speeds can be a hard sell, particularly the womens style.
When I buy a group of bikes, I typically make an offer based on what I think the best ones are worth, and the rest become part of the deal. So if there are 3 that are "mens style", I would make an offer on what I thought those three would be worth, in needs work condition. I might add a little more for the other 3 in my calculation, but not a lot.
Around here, it would take me a while to get full market out of 6 3-speeds (like a year or more). Hopefully you have room to store them. Its all about demand in your market.
And again, depending on your area, there probably are not many buyers interested in picking up six three speeds at once. Now if you are in NYC, or SF, or Portland, OR; totally different story.
