The blue one has a rocket emblem on it, and the other one is a schwinn. you guys maybe have a rough guess on the years?

I'd like to restore these two for a school project. I'm new to vintage bikes. thanks for the help guys!

think i'd be able to decently restore them with about 30-50 hours?

Also, do you know any good websites (besides this one, hah) that i'd use to help me w/ restoring them.

Balloon tire bikes... every bike manufacturer nowadays offers at least one in its bike lineup and they're popular for a reason.

This is a classic paperboy bike. It's what I had as a kid. Still has the baskets on it.

Blue one might have been made by Monarch. Google "Schwinn serial number" and you should be able to pinpoint the exact hour the red one came off the line.

You would pay $150+ for that Schwinn here. It appears original and unmolested.
