Default Component Quality of Rental bikes

with the closing down of one rental bicyce scheme, and may other(s), I'm
wondering what is the quality of the components use within and on these
bicycles.

My interest is reuse/repurpose for various project involving bicycle
tech/parts.

THey were built to a price and many of them seemed to have odd shaped
bits precisely to stop people nicking them to use on other bicycles.

THey will be heavy (so they can take abuse) and expect them to be odd
shaped and a bit non-standard.

Thanks.

No worse than some of the other bike tech I've used/attempted to use in
the past then.

And better than the low-carbon steel I usually build prototypes out of.

I'll have to keep a look out for auctions/disposals.
