Keep in mind these are not new bikes, but used ones in need of some
maintenance. I don't know if this might cause problems with kids who were
trying to get new ones?
Assuming that the maintenance is on the level of flat-fixing
cleaning and tuning, I'd be willing to take care of making one of the five
rideable. Do we have volunteers to care for the other four?
I was also wondering if perhaps the Family Support Network might be
have some kids in mind who would appreciate the bikes.
At the very least, if we can find volunteers to get them rideable, they
could be donated to a resale shop, where, hopefully, someone would
be very excited to find a bargain for their kids, and the charity would
make the money on the sale.
