These worth $50? I guess I need someone to tell me to go get them. I got my Fuji Espree and Fuji Allegro for $50 both. These are also $50 for both. Missing some parts though.... "urbanized" if you will.

I'd get them. Clean them, lube them and give them to a bikeless tall friend (or two). Help somebody get into cycling.

It depends on what your plan for them would be.

Flip? It'd be hard not to make money on them when you're starting at $25/per bike. Buy.

Keep and restore? Pass. Too much trouble.

Almost definitely worth it if you're going to clean them up and flip them. I don't usually flip stuff but I'd probably but these, put $25 into each of them and then sell them for $150 each. Of course, I live in NYC so the market is pretty good here.

If they were local to me I'd make the thread "look what I just got for $50".

I'd grab those for $50. Frames & parts are worth that much. Even if they are missing a few things.

I'm such a fan of that Fuji designed really great, handsome bikes in the 80's, I always getting excited when I see one. But...closer look and one is missing the post and saddle, both have ruined handlebars and no hoods and I only see one chainring on both, so it looks like someone monkeyed with the drivetrain. SO, if where you live is a desert that never produces vintage bike, and you've got the spare time, knock youself out, lots of cool parts and a couple of frames. If vintage bikes come up where you are, maybe pass on those.
