I just bought a Murray AMC VIII bike blue in color with this serial number stamped on the bracket:
MOW 41X88 105218
Trying to identify the type of bike and when it was made-it is a Birthday gift for my 25 year daughter next week.
I would also like advice on replacing the batteries in the lights-no idea how they come out or in-the pics are really bad because the bike is hidden so my daughter cannot see it-it is a surprise-I can try and wheel it out later for better photos but see what you can do with this- it's start
Your AMC tank is just like my Hiawatha tank. The tank halves are hinged at the back with a rivet. The "U" shaped piece on the back holds it in place against a bar between the two frame rails. The front is held in place by the head light bezel. Once the headlight bezel has been removed, the two halves can be pryed apart giving you access to the battery box.
Reaize that AMC was a conglomerate that bought en masse and sold bikes under the AMC name through Mom and Pop hardware stores in towns that didn't have big box stores like Sears, Pennys, Gambles, etc. You won't find a code for AMC. (I have an AMC Caravan.) Hopefully one of the aficianodos can help you with the date.
