The stem shifters and brake safety levers point towards them being lower end bikes.

Road King was a brand sold at Eatons in Canada. I had a nice silver example that my dad bought me in 1979 or so. It had steel rims and stem shifters.
When it was stolen I was old enough to buy my own bike, but I never considered another Road King.
