If everything on the bike is working well, $50 would be fair. The strata was Bianchi's entry level bike but they would be okay for a rider who just wants to exercise or maybe to commute with.

Depends on who's doing the work to clean, overhaul, and tune up that bike. If you're prepared to DIY with the right tools and about $60 in parts, go for it, otherwise fuggedaboutit as a LBS willing to work on it will charge at least $200+, making it an unworthwhile investment.

Did you take these photos in the sellers garage or after you bought them? If you own them you did OK at $75 for the Raleigh and Bianchi. You won't get rich flipping them but you could have a couple of decent riders. Or rehab one, sell it and have 1 good rider for almost free.
I'd keep the Raleigh for sure.

PS. If you didn't buy them and want to better get on it. Or you bought them and the ad is still up. That never happens, LOL.

Thanks for your inputs gentlemen! It seems the bikes (Bianchi & Raleigh) are worth fixing up to be decent riders.
