Here is the loot for your viewing pleasure!
AMF Scorcher frame. I haven't done any research on the frame, yet, but it may be from the 70s. There are no dents or cracks on the frame. I suppose it could be used to build a pretty decent bike, for tooling around town.
I do not know what brand or make the 3rd bike, the gray one, is. However, that doesn't matter as much to me as does the fact that it has a usable handlebar, crank, and a front derailleur.
I may have to the wheels from the Ward's bike, in my new bike build, or get some used wheels. The wheels; on the Ward's bike are heavy; they feel like they are made of good ole' steel as well.
I would like to repaint the orange frame. Not sure of the color, when/how to do it, yet!
Most interesting for me is that I have no clue how to any of these and I will have to learn a lot. I figure I ain't got much to lose, especially if I keep a close watch on my wallet.
PS. I wonder if I can build a bike with a SA/Nexus IGH with Gates drive!
