First, I am a BMX guy. So please excuse my ignorance when it comes to muscle bikes. I picked up 2 muscle bikes in a package deal the 1st is a Murray Wildcat with no serial #. The second is a F5 Ranger. The second as far as I can figure out through my searching seems to be made by Murray for the Ranger bicycle company. Any info would help, I love the knowledge. On the Wildcat, is it did am I looking in the wrong place for serial number? Do you think it's possible the dropout was replaced? Could it be a fake?

Don't think anything was replaced. As for the location of any number is there anything under the crank?

Nice pick ups there! The Wildcat was made after 1971. In 1971 they started sticking that BMA-6 sticker on the seat tube. from the looks of it, I would guess that is a 1973-1974 built bike.

The F-5 is very cool! That is a Murray Eliminator, just sold with a Ranger badge. That one looks like a 1969 or 1970, based on the seat and the pedals. It *should* have a serial number on the frame on the non-drive side rear dropout. See if there is one there and post it up, and then search this site for the "Murray Serial Number Project" and you'll find a post with a decode for the numbers.

Hope that helps!
