I do not consider this article to be a positive manufacturer identification for the above bicycle, but the article does suggest that the above bicycle may be around 1897.

I think reference to 'Ideal' in 1897 would be Shelby's Ideal line which started 1896. So, presumably, Hexagonal tubing was added to their Ideal models and maybe it wasn't asticaly pleasing and only got a short hex tube run?
