How much is this vintage Huffy and Jet worth?

Wonder if anyone might know how much this these bikes may be worth, and where I could/should sell them.

An early 1970's Huffy Miss America Bike







A Jet Bike from the 1960's






Both have been kept in a garage, no rust, good condition.

Nice girls muscle bike very cool but only worth about $100. If you have someone in your family that can ride use it I would say keep it. I'm not sure of value on the Jet just havnet seen many and there are a lot of condtion issues. To get good value this type bike needs to be in prestine ready to ride condition.

I think the estimate above is high...you'll be lucky to get $100. I'd say $50...pretty or not, it's a Huffy and the market for that is someone who wants CHEAP. Not familiar with Jet, but looks like a standard box store cruiser to me...$75.

The Huffy is worth basically nothing, except for the seat which if it is uncracked and unsoiled should be worth a good amount because of the pattern and matching sissy bar. If it had a normal banana seat I couldn't see it being worth any more than maybe $25. To the right person who wants it for the parts, I think $75-$100 might be fair.

The middleweight, assuming it is rideable would be a $100 bike on a good day. The tank is in tact, it has the rack, it looks pretty complete and original. The problem with it is it is not American - some off brand made in Europe most likely, or else it might be worth a bit more.

+1 What buyers want on Stingray type bikes are three things: 1. Needs to be a Schwinn. 2. Needs to be a boy's style bike. 3. Needs to be multiple speed (5 speed). So called "Krate" bikes are red hot right now.

Unfortunately, the bike fails all three of these requirements. So value is limited, although parts may be desirable to someone (see comment above about the saddle).

As far as the Jet, that Cadet speedometer, if it works and is complete, could bring as much as $50 on ebay, depending on cosmetic condition, marketing, and timing.
