Need help identifying a few bikes
8 Attachment(s)

My friend has a number of old bikes upstairs in his barn. Most of them are in pretty tough shape, but here's a few I'm interested in. Sorry I couldn't get separate photos of them all. Any help would be appreciated. I think the blue bike is a Whizzer, but there is no head badge.

Also, I'm considering making him an offer for the lot. But I have no idea what would be fair.

Thanks for looking.

wow the mother lode. i collect vintage bikes but cant help you much off the pics. not sure what motorized bike is but for sure collectible. the other two balloon bikes have shivs on the rear wheels for a drive belt again motorized. the crusty bikes from around the 20s. if the chief badge is in good shape its worth quite a bit. look for old seats lights tanks ect vintage parts bring a premium if their decent. looks like one bike could be a racer i see some drop bars, i would be interested in any old racing bikes or parts. dig around and have fun if i can help let me know

Thanks for the replies. Any ideas on what the green or blue one might be? I was leaning toward a Montgomery Ward and a Schwinn, but I haven't had any luck matching the front suspension for the green bike with an MW. If you need some better photos or specific areas I should be able to get them. Thanks again.
