As soon as you can post pictures I'm sure people will be able to help. The tiny retirement that you have 10 posts kills spam which makes this place a lot more useful.

Make sure they are pictures of the driver side (crank side) with good light

Pics will certainly help. Generally speaking, Sprites arenít particular valuable.

Actual bikes worth $75 or so as is and the nice Pletscher rear racks $40-50 so you should consider take them off and selling them alone off the bikes.

I wish... I have a clean Pletscher rack for sale here on the forum for $20 with no interest. It is still available if you want it.
