Two electro-forged 1970's beauties. Back when they built stuff to last. You should be able to get around $75 to $100 for the Schwinn. Maybe $50 for the Murray.

These bikes look to be in great shape but aren't worth a lot. There just isn't a big market for mass produced step through 3 speeds. I would say $100-125 for the Schwinn and $75 for the Murray.

In Texas, I would agree on zukahn1's valuations. You might check to ebay solds to see if it is worth the effort to sell them there, particularly the Breeze.

In a large city, I could see the schwinn going for north of $150 to someone who wants a vintage bike. The condition on this bike is excellent. I'd start out at $150 and adjust the price as needed.

That Breeze is in outstanding condition. And a great color.
Sell it in Austin, if you're near by.
