Thanks! Chain is block type. Was there a certain year that most manufacturers switched over to roller?

okay I finally got the patent date right :)

It's a little hard to read

November 13, 1888 is the patented date below the bottom bracket

Actually there's another number - probably just a serial number right?

It starts with '98..' Would it be that obvious?

I am not an expert, just a guy that likes bikes. The rim with the two gold(?) pinstripes looks like it might be from Columbia. The rim with the carmine stripe, might be from Davis (some Daytons came similar to this). The locking nut on the headset looks possibly Columbia as do the bars. I would think it started as one of those marks, but I don't know. Just have some fun!

I would guesstimate it to be between 1905 and 1910. Can't figure out manufacturer...
