Can you help me find my serial numbers?

I have two bikes that I can't find the serial numbers on. I want to get licenses for them, but I need the SNs, so if anyone can help, I'd appreciate it!
The first one is an (I think) '84 Bridgestone 300.
The other is a 2003 Burley Runabout 7.

Thanks a lot.

Did you check the bottom bracket shell? That's where they commonly put them (among other places). Turn the bike upside down and have a look.

I've looked everywhere on the frame that I can think of. They're on the BB Shell of my other two bikes, but not on these two.. I've cleared all of the grime away that I can find, but I still can't find 'em. I thought maybe someone here would know, otherwise I'll maybe ask at my LBS, I've got to go pick up a lock this weekend anyway.
Thanks.

Many custom bikes don't have serial numbers. My two road bikes and mountain bike don't.

One place I've seen classy steel bikes put the serial number is on the fork steerer tube. That way the detail finish of the bike aren't messed up. I know that seems silly to worry about the bottom of the bottom bracket, but a custom steel lugged frame done properly is a work of art from all angles.
