Matching His & Hers 1967 Skyway Three Speeds

I am trying to figure out what is the best way to treat my parents old bikes. They Purchased Matching 1967( or 1964?) Blue Skyway 3 speeds. They only road them a few times. Neither bike has the original seats, though knowing my dad they may be in a box somewhere. His bike has new tires, otherwise they are total stock. Both our in surprising good shape, and do not really require any work.

I was wondering if they had more value as a pair?

I would like to keep my dad's bike, but I don't really have a use for my moms.

I want your opinions on if I should separate this pair up?

They might have value as a pair. But generally not. The women's bike will be worth less, so selling them as a pair is usually used more as a ply to get rid of both bikes at once.

Any bike that has been sitting idle for many years will require work: bearings and grease, and cables and housings as a minimum.

Neither bike has a lot of value, keep the one you want and enjoy it, and sell or donate the women's bike.

Thanks for the input.

I will probably clean them both up and see if my wife will ride the girls bike.

My Dad was kinda odd. Every winter he would store the bikes. Then every spring he would get the out of storage, put air in the tires, grease the chain, and ride them once around the block. Usually that was the only time he would ride them all year.

I know they are not extremely valuable, but I think I will post some pics to show them off anyways.
