Help needed to ID two bikes

I recently bought 2 bikes and I can't ID them. I was told they were 80's Schwinns but run the serial numbers and don't match. They both say made in Taiwan. Serial numbers are: PA0110... and YL0301... can anybody help?? I have pictures if needed.

Welcome to the forums efrain!

Yes pictures will be needed Drive Side are the best. sometimes the differences between models is the Derailleurs

There is one hitch , you will need 10 posts to post a pic. so you can post some information about these bikes.

The serial numbers are in the front post. They both have the front fork spring, but ido t know if it came originally with them or was installed later

I'm starting to think that they are some other Taiwan made brand. But the serials don't show up in any search engine I have looked

No head badges? Are there holes in the headtubes that would correspond to rivets for head badges? If so, how are they spaced? Once you hit 10 posts, and can post photos, be sure to include the headtube of each bike.

Do they have MTB-style suspension forks, or the old-school chrome steel springs, like what you'd see on a '50s or '60s cruiser?

No badges and no holes where there would be a headbadge.

The suspension is like a spring, as in the cruisers.

Looks like someone put a Schwinn Phantom rack, tank, and fork on a Taiwanese cruiser. Parts are probably reproductions, as they were commonly available in the last decade.
