Try using a text editor and deleting the line "MenuPosition->0" from
near the top of the stylesheet.nb files (also you can then delete the
cache id line, and open and re-save the notebook file in mathematica,
so you recreate the cached data, so it loads a bit faster). Then
restart mathematica and the stylesheet should show up.

It seems that "MenuPosition->0" has the effect of making the
stylesheet not show up in the menu at all.

It's pretty tedious making the change to each stylesheet...
