    650's? 500's?
    hard to tell.
    need the VIN #'s from both of them off the motors,AND the frame neck #'s too.
    pretty neat though.

    Worth whatever someone will give ya really,,

    Red one looks shot, and frame could sell but without a title not for much,, looks like maybe teh back wheel could bring a few bucks, front end worthless.

    Greeny with no carbs, looks like the motor has been exposed so good chance insides have water.

    No gold mine or good score sadly ,,but neat to see, may be good for trading to someone as well

    both are 650's, the green one is likely a 1965, the red one is a 1970, the parts are all worth money.
    the weather and rust has done a lot of damage to the engine but the transmissions are probably still good and the red frame is worth a couple hundred .
    The no paper work thing doesn't mean anything here in California, a bill of sale is all you need I don't know about your state.

    The serial numbers will tell you everything.

    Transmissions sell for less the $100 on ebay,.. by the time you take it out of the motor find out its condition, and someone tries to talk you down on the price, is it even worth the hassle.

    While paperwork may not be an issue in CA, most other places it is, and again, if you have to ship it , someone s gonna talk you into the basement on price as it would cost at least 1/2 as much as what you will pay for it, to have it shipped.

    If you can make a local sale or trade that is your best bet

    also the fact that nothing has been done to them in a years time, I doubt they are in any better shape.

    Sadly they will mist likely continue to rot as some one may have it in the head that they are worth far more than they actually are.

    lets ad it up..

    1970 frame $200
    1970 cases w/ trans and crank $200
    2 rear wheels $50
    1965 motor $150
    you can ship a srinked wrapped frame across the country through FedX for $75
    you can ship a motor for about $100 through common carriers.

    M2C on titles......every state drops vehicles off of the books after so many years of non registration, chances are those 2 bikes have no record on file. so you walk in to your DMV and tell them it's been in my garage for 25 years and you lost the paperwork.
    As long as it doesn't come up as being stolen and it's "off record" it's a simple thing to get a duplicate title.
    but you don't need a title to sell it as parts.
    I buy frames and motors on Ebay all the time, I can have them registered in my name in 10 minutes for $65, (same story)
    learn how to lie, our government is built on that foundation.

    so it is kinda like someone gave you $600,..... that's always been a good day to me.

    so are you trying to figure out what you can get for them or part them out?
    if so,i sent you a PM about parts off of them.,never heard anything back.
