    A couple old bikes from my parents' garage. Just wondering if they're worth anything. Thank you in advance.

    In a word - no. There could always be some collector out there whose first bike was one of those but they have no intrinsic value.

    Well - no.
    They’d cost as much in parts to get rolling again - tires and tubes etc - that you’d get from selling them on.
    And with steel rims - and rusted at that - braking would be poor to horrible.
    Someone might still want them for parts though.
    The black one has a 3-speed hub that still might be salvageable.
    Some people like cruiser bikes to use as a base for motorized bikes.
    Take pics from the right/drive side, showing the chainring/cranks, and offer them for free, or trade them for a pack of donuts/beer.

    I think for me, It's worth a lot, imagine how your parents love bikes and until now it's still looks working. This one is gonna worth a million, but well, just sentimental value.

    Yeah, they're not really worth anything but if they're still functional maybe you can give/even sell it to others who want to start biking.
