I have 2 Schwinn frames that I'll never do anything with but before I throw them out thought I'd check to see if they're worth anything. Maybe $5, $10 apiece, maybe more?
1st Le Tour Mixte from 1976 serial # 6A17921 on LR dropout.
2nd Continental, year ?, serial# 0J582368 (can't tell if 1st digit is a letter or a number)

They're worth good karma, do you have a bike co-op nearby?

They have little to no resale value. But before throwing them out, I'd try donating them as suggested above. The mixte is kinda cool. Someone might want to build that back up.

If you can't donate, they can be recycled. Check you local dump to see if they have scrap metal drop off, or try an internet search for a recycler. It is the right thing to do, even though it will not pay you more then a couple of bucks. The yellow frame in particular would be good recycling; plain carbon steel and a lot of it (10 pounds?)

Pretty sure the blue mixte is a Le Tour model, made by Panasonic. Check e-bay or your local craig's list for what complete versions of these bikes go for.
