2000 Schwinn Canadian Beast Jay Miron
Schwinn U.S.A-made Jay Miron Signature frame
Schwinn Torque Flite made its appearance in 1997, it was the team ride for some cool riders (including Jay Miron & Dave Osato) of the Schwinn-Toyota freestyle team.
In the year 2000, Torque Flite became the signature frame of Jay Miron himself.....and Schwinn sold this frame under his nickname: "Canadian Beast"
I'm planning on building this beauty, and riding it from time to time to remember those good old days :)
I'll update it as long as there's progress.
