I assume you take out the bottom bracket which is connect to the internal shaft drive? that way you roll the chain through until you find the quicklink or just use a chainbreaker and pull the rest out?

 

Or am i missing something?

50 points to the first correct answer. :)

 

You wrap it tightly around the top tube, seat tube and seat stay, around a sturdy lamp post and padlock it!

 

Nice. Not yours I take it?

Nope not mine- but its an interesting museum piece- never seen anything like it and I guess there's a very good reason for that.

That is one low tech driveshaft. iv seen more complex mixers!!! the simpler the better!!!

 

The pic is titled "1899 Columbia Model 59 Shaft Drive Bicycle".

 

I'm guessing it was designed by a rail steam engine engineer, except that the shaft here is driven by muscle power. The clue is that circular looking therblig on the rear hub- you just can't see the shaft that turns it around.
