Nice! Looks blown in mold and not machine made.(post 1910). When I was digging bottles in the 70s and early 80s the 3 in 1 oil bottles of this type were pretty common in household dumps but to have Bicycle Oil embossed on it is really cool!
Looks like the 19th century lubricant behemoth Nye used this same bottle for their bicycle oil.

I did it the easy way and bought them at antique shows. I liked them with labels and had a few with boxes as well. I liked the lettering and the crazy claims of the medicine bottles, they cured things that didn't even exist. here's a few I recently sold on ebay

Me and my brother Joe would look for old cork top bottles in the 70's and has amassed quite a few over the years. Some of them are quite rare and can be valuable.
