A mile or three west of Hartland, WI.
I took a look yesterday. The guy says he doesn't know what these are worth and wants to collect offers until the weekend before he decides on a price. I put in a marginally high (to me) "bid"/offer on the Fuji but won't cry foul if someone here snags it instead. He wouldn't let it go yesterday at my offer price, and I didn't feel like playing anymore.

What he has is remnants from an estate, possibly his dad or uncle. Only thing of real interest in the bucket of parts was a pair of Mafac brake levers.

The Club Fuji is a 12 speed, 700c wheels, marginal paint, seat tube measured about 56cm ctc. My biggest issue with it was that the owner had engraved his driver's license number all over the place on it: on the stem, on the frame, on the rims, probably elsewhere. Borderline deal killer and definitely kills any flip potential on it. As such my interest in it is as a daily rider and commuter bike. I didn't catch the brand name on the rims or hubs.

The Peugeot measures about 57cm or so ctc on the seat tube. Not sure what wheels went with it. Mafac Racer brake calipers, cottered cranks, bolt on derailleur hanger and stamped rear dropouts. I didn't see a model name or number on it and I didn't catch what derailleurs were on it.

The Spalding is a step thru frame bike boom special, the Kent is a men's frame and a notch or four below the Spalding. The Kent also had a different fork on it and we found the original and bent fork from the Kent in a nearby bucket of parts.
If you're local I don't know what price will get the seller to give up the assemblage before Sunday, so plan on having to make two trips with the first a viewing and the second for an actual sale.

And I'm still wavering on the Fuji because that engraving is grating on me. I am open to opinions on what I.d. Engraving does to values percentagewise.

They sure are. My buddy just sold one for a quick flip. He only got $180 for it. Makes we wonder how cheap he got it for.

Bg, I thought you already had a set. Didn't mean to out you.
But if you come by, be sure to bring a C&V w/gearing to ride some hills.

Didn't realize these were made by Nitto. One came on a flat bar conversion of a Centurion I had picked up, tossed it in the corner without giving it a second thought.

I took everything off of it, cleaned it up a bit, and indeed it says Nitto. It's a hefty stem.
