    Those three speed Suburbans aren't like hen's teeth, but they're not real common, either. Nice bikes!

    These are "lightweight" bikes not middle weights. Dig the suburban 3s!

    Yes, there's a separate subforum for these "lightweights". Schwinn's middleweights included the Corvette, Jag Mk II and later, Typhoon, American, etc.
