So, you'll find there are other folks around here that can't stay away from the 3-speeds.
I like yours in this order:
1. Raleigh Gold edition!
2. Philips
3. AMF (which is a Hercules)
4. JC Higgins (which is a Puch I think)

Sell the rest and fix those 4.

Very nice collection - thanks for the photos. They all look to be in great and original condition. The gold Raleigh does stand out.
