Posting for a friend at work. He says they are about 50 years old.

No replies so far. I am not really familiar with the US market - perhaps they have some nostalgia value there - but in Europe I do not think there is any value. Crude, department store level bikes that need a lot of work. Garden ornaments at best.

The girls frames also tend to attract much less attention from collectors than the boys frames do.

I sold one just like the blue/white one... not refurbished, straight out of a barn. It also had a rear paperboy Wald metal rack. Some lady bought it to use as “yard art” as a planter..

I got $65 for it.

I'm pretty sure the second one has some value being a BF Goodrich. Girls bikes aren't an easy sell but that one is probably 50s and with white rims and complete is attractive. I would ask about them here Valuations are not really given there but will help you price. The red could be a few hundred.

Actually they look very nice. Sad that they are for girls, but if cleaned I think you can sell them for around 70$

I would say there worth around $75-100 piece. If you check on ebay the older Raliegh licences plates are likely worth something also you see stuff like this selling for $20-50 at bigger swap meats.

Those bikes have value as decorative items. Consider advertising & selling them to people interested in using them for display. You could turn one of those into a mailbox. Put it out in the front yard & plant a tree on it. Turn it into a wind vane. Make it into a windchime. I don't know. Just sell the damn thing. Forget about what it means to you. Let go. Be good. Have fun.

As stated before those Raleigh license plates are pretty cool. Would look real good hanging up in a garage!
