Serial Number Location?

Does this look odd the way the cables run thru?
I thought this was where the serial number was supposed to be?
Does anyone know where the serial numbers are?

That does not look odd, it's one of many ways that frames guide the cables.

Serial numbers can be anywhere, look ALL over.

Or nowhere, sometimes....

Seat tubes, head tubes, and rear dropouts are common places for serials
