Hurricane Harvey survivor!

Hello from Houston. I joined the forum to learn if and how I can salvage my flooded bikes. It is an ambitious project for me as I have not done much bicycle mechanical work at all. We had five bikes that sat in about 5 feet of water for two weeks until the flood receded. We have been so busy trying to rebuild the house that the bikes were not a priority. Now I am looking at them and wondering if I can save them. Trying to begin with my oldest, first bike, an old 21 speed hybrid that I acquired around 1990. I rode several centuries on this old bike and more MS150 than I can recall. Now I havenít ridden in 3 years (too busy with drywall and flood restoration) and hoping to be back in one or more of these old saddles soon.
