Hello PurplePusher,

the serial number might be B00193679. If so, the first 0 is for the year 1980 and the next 01 is for the month January. This would be the date of frame manufacture.

Hi eclps,

The serial number is probably under the down tube or lower backside of the seat tube. It may be difficult to see because the paint is thick.

The paint style is not uncommon for 1990.
