73 Schwinn Suburbans / Matched Set

My in-laws bought these new in ND in 1973 and they were not ridden for 35 years. I took them out of garage last spring and had them tuned up and new tires installed. They are both "J" serial numbers and in great shape. They are great riding bikes, but we only use them while camping. Am I taking a chance on someone stealing a lot of money if they get ripped off at the campground (it happens). Are they worth more being a matched set?

Better to take some $20 scrappy mountain bikes that no one would want - and keep those Suburbans for yourselves locked away at home for nice summer evening rides with your sweetie. They are nice riding bikes (as long as terrain is reasonably level) and they are nice looking too.

I don't know that they are worth appreciably more as a matched set, unless they're consecutive serial numbers. I would estimate their value at about a couple hundred dollars, if sold together or separately.
