I live for the CABE
This shaft drive frame, what's left of it, is interesting. Seems the company was pretty advanced in it's shaft drive technology.
The remains of the head badge say Hill Climber and San Francisco. Anyone ever heard of this badge? Wish the badge lettering was clearer. Wish the bike was complete!

Found this reference on Wikipedia, in 1902, The Hill-Climber Bicycle Mfg. Company sold a three-speed shaft-driven bicycle in which the shifting was implemented with three sets of bevel gears.

Someone was restoring on in 2009. https://www.bikingbis.com/2009/07/1...mber-first-multiple-gear-bike-produced-in-us/.
