Those dark, busy, photos don't make it easy for us to help you. Take the bikes outside one by one and take photos of the drive side (the side with the derailleurs) for us for starters.

From what I see the gold Gitane Tour de France may be the most valuable one of the bunch.

Justamy Those Raleigh Racing USA bikes have some appeal but I think people sometimes ask too much for them.

Whats the black or dark green one with the chrome fork? That might be interesting

I stumbled onto a Terranaut a while back and looked them up it was a house brand from a shop in MO, either Marukin or Fuji made depending on year. Often Tange tubing, good mid-range components, depending on model.

Im suspecting these may be facebook marketplace photos and you came across a bike boom stash in someone's barn. My kind of stuff. I'd like to see better photos. But I'd start with the Raleigh Racing Super Course. But if you are looking to just flip these, I wouldn't go too crazy trying to do too much. your ROI may not be much.

These are actually in my basement/ shop and there's more not pictured out in the shed they were my guys dad's. He passed away but was very into bicycles kind of a health nut. There's tons of bike stuff that he just wants to sell so that's what I'm goal is here. I'm going to take better pictures out in the daylight I'm going to try for today but not sure if I will get to it. Thanks for all info all. 🙂

found meself a-wunnerin' anent this fellow as well

appears to have originally been a red flambouyant

Weinmann 750 caliper astern

all of those spacers on the steerer suggest fork a replacement

top tube housing stop and guide consistent with a TI product

---

has anyone been able to ID the red machine with the relieved brake levers?

You are in the right place to get answers. If and when you can post better pictures, you will find out a lot more I suspect.

This is kinda basic and your bikes probably don’t have the shifter/brake lever combination but it’s a start.

I don’t think there’s anything super valuable in there but it doesn’t look like a lot of really low end stuff either. Dust off the frame and components with a little lemon pledge and I bet, depending on you market you’ll have a bunch of nice bikes in the $150-200 range. If you ask and someone is nearby a member might even be willing to come help you sort and give a rough idea on price.

Thank you.. that would be cool if there was someone that would come take a look really he would like to sell the entire lot of bike stuff to someone just to get rid of it and do someone can get some use out of it I live in southeast Missouri not sure if any members would wanna do that id definitely would be ok with it 🙂

Agree about the Raleigh USA bike. Fully chrome rear triangle, it looks like. Probably some version of Raleigh 555 tubing, aka either Tange or Ishiwata butted tubes.

The fork on the Gitane may be bent; the fork crown looks as if it's not square with the lower headset cup.

The only way that happens is if you give away the entire lot on the condition that they have to take everything.

On first look none seemed particularly valuable and in the condition they are in you may get $50 bucks here and there. At the very least you need to clean them and post a good picture for a better assessment. For starters the bike outside on good daylight, full side picture showing the drive (crank) side.

Justamy Not necessarily. While I've had to haul home a couple of bikes I didn't want to get one I did, I've seen a few facebook marketplace ads where if the seller was patient, they could sell them individually. IMHO, a flipper would not offer you for the lot what they would sell for individually so if you are not in a hurry to free up space, you can take your time.

I don't know about SE Missouri, but if you were in SW Missouri around Joplin I'd think you could ask $125 for a few of them individually and wind up getting $75. And then there are middle of the road types like me that would possibly bundle a couple of bikes. For example, if I didn't have a bunch of projects in my garage already, I'd like the Nishiki mixte and maybe the Gitane. There may be a couple of them you almost can't give away. It will all come down to if you want to make a quick buck or take your time.

Honestly selling them as a lot is close to impossible without pretty much giving them away. My suggestion was not that he should do that but that he should clean and list them separately.

I have bought several bikes at once, last time it was ten bikes. Eight of them I dropped off at Goodwill on the way home. The other two were decent. The typical buyer out there is not interested in projects, and not interested in buying several bikes either.
