50s/60s Shelby Bicycles

I have two Shelby bicycles from late 1950s/early 1960s. They were my father's and aunt's bikes from their childhood. The blue is Shelby Special Airflo and the red a Shelby Flyer. All of the parts on the bicycles are original and in fairly good condition for their age. Does anyone have any idea what they may be worth? They were headed to the junk yard for scrap metal before I rescued them from my grandparents house!

That is a nice rescue! I'm not familiar with american bikes like that. Maybe someone here is. You can also try the CABE. It's all about vintage bikes and they would love to see yours. You can find them at I would LOVE to have these 2 in my collection. The blue one is stunning. I'm so glad you rescued them. What I can say is that they are probably worth more than what the metal recycler would have give them.
