    Just a thought : Maybe this is a trick cycle ?
    Similar cycles were used by trick riders in the early 1900's . See the exploits of Nick Kaufmann of Rochester N.Y. He would pedal his high bike and disassemble it while riding . He and his family continued performing into the early twentieth century. His bikes had release mechanisms that made it possible . Most were full nickle plate .

    I don't think its a trick bike. I think you will agree when I assemble and take pictures of the rest of the parts.

    I have a set of adjustable bars that can be flipped upside down to become either riser bars or very steep drops. They use an interesting "keyed" stem section very similar to what I see poking out of the steer tube on your machine.
