High-spin level schemes of the N = 80 isotones 146Dy, 147Ho and 148Er have been investigated by in-beam $\gamma$-ray spectroscopic methods using the NORDBALL Compton-suppressed multidetector array including proton and neutron selection. The projectile-target system 58Ni + 92Mo at 260 MeV beam energy has been used to produce the neutron-deficient N = 80 isotones. The previously known schemes have been extended to considerably higher spin and exitation energy, up to $I = 23 \hbar$, $E_x \approx 8.9$ MeV in 146Dy, $I = 53/2 \hbar$, $E_x \approx 8.7$ MeV in 147Ho and $I = 23 \hbar$, $E_x \approx 9.6$ MeV in 148Er. The results are discussed in terms of the spherical shell model. Many of the levels can be described within this framework.
