You have the bicycle in front o fyou, soI'm likely mistaken.

ROS' post adds further value, given that his serial number is from 1985 and matches your format (i.e. mmyyxxxxx). I have a handful of other 1985 serial numbers and they are format RAyymmxxxx. Besides the RA prefix (Ross Allentown?), the year and month positions are reversed and there is one less 'x' character. A couple of the samples have one and two places holding zeroes at the start of the 'x' character string, so it would appear that this portions of the serial number was a maximum of four characters, for this format.
