Depends on what they are made of? Steel is currently trading at around 170 per ton.

If they are aluminium, it might be worth it if there's a scrappy nearby. If they are steel, it's probably not worth bothering.

You need to know roughly how much they weigh.

You'd have to weigh them to get an idea of what they are worth as scrap.

If they are in good condition, you might get more selling them as replacement frames.
