I just acquired these bikes and am new to this. I came from the mountain bike world and am looking to get started. Can anyone identify these and how much are they worth? I may part out to two to build one.

cheers

I'd say that you should make two bikes. Those bottom two are really cool frames. Bottom one is some type of "Spaceliner" style.

The top step through has some nice stuff too, the chain guard, crank and truss fork setup look cool if they're salvageable
Can't tell you much about the straight bar, looks nice though. Others here have more expertise on identity and value on the old ones

Interesting that the step-thru rear fender has two thick strap-type mounts, yet the fender clearly has the rivetted loops for wire type tensioning.

Yes that Elgin is mid '40's not worth a whole bunch. I had a fully functioning '45 with nice paint mens fenders. I could not sell it. The ladies rear fender has correct struts the holes are for lacing a skirt guard over the wheel. The next 2 are '60s a Columbia straight bar and yes a Sears Spaceliner. Both middle weights. As incompletee as they are again not a lot of money there. The truss fork, chain guard, crank and sprocket are the only money on the Elgin.
