HOFFMAN JAY MIRON "PUNISHER". ANYONE KNOW ITS WHERE ABOUTS.

Winters been brutal and so you start ...poking around, exploring BMX history to keep your mind nourished with BMX stuff. I just stumbled apon the story of the Jay Miron prototype this year. I'm mainly the SKYWAY guy here so, just didn't know. But I always look back at my fav riders and all things related to SKYWAY. Hense an interest in HARO/HOFFMAN/SCHWINN etc. I'm curious as hell...anyone know the where about of the PUNISHER prototype and if only one was made? Adam Dawson come on down!. Your the first contestant on "WHERE THE HELL IS THAT BIKE" lol.


Heres my profound, life changing statement.

They're reacting and that's wonderful. It's better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react - do whatever's in your power to move the audience, and if that's where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.

Re: HOFFMAN JAY MIRON "PUNISHER". ANYONE KNOW ITS WHERE ABOUTS.

whereabouts are unknown.  i tried contacting jay a few years back about it but he never got back to me.

there was only the one frame. shane welded it up. 
it was actually gonna be a trans purple just like the big daddy that day smith had in 95, but the painter couldnt get it right, color ended up being a mega bright purple, like 80s bright purple and jay REALLY didnt like it so they painted it black.

Re: HOFFMAN JAY MIRON "PUNISHER". ANYONE KNOW ITS WHERE ABOUTS.

So, I read in one of the pic captions that the bike was a dark blue/black. Is that wrong?

I most likely will unless I drink way too much or smoke above my limit of marijuana.

Re: HOFFMAN JAY MIRON "PUNISHER". ANYONE KNOW ITS WHERE ABOUTS.

My guess..

A) if Jay still had / owned the bike when he left Hoffman, it was likely used to make the jigs for the Schwinn Torque Flyte. Which means it is either sitting in a tool-room in a Schwinn shop somewhere...

B) or if it was left at HB when Jay left the team, Mark Owen or Swope might know where it is...

C) or it's in Jay's garage...

Jay took it when he went to Schwinn. There's lots of pics showing him riding the bike with big down tube Schwinn decals on it.

And yes, Schwinn copied parts of the PUNISHER frame design. The whole tapered rear top tube where it flattens out is all PUNISHER.

I wouldn't say that Schwinn copied anything. Miron took that top tube design from his Hoffman days all the through to his first MacNeil frame.

Hmm. I guess I never realized that the first bike Jay rode for Schwinn (and got a lot of coverage with) was the HB proto, with big red Schwinn stickers.

Bottom of Page 1, adamdawson again with the HB goods and history!!

Sure..but it started with the PUN8SHER. Started when he was at HOFFMAN. If Jay designed it, he had the right. If he "took" it...that's a different story. Jay's one of my favourite riders of all time, but there seems to be more reasons he's called "THE BEAST" LOL. Stories exist of, shall we say, strange, occurrences ?lol.
Still think he's one of BMXS best ever.

From what I was told locally(and this might be just another one of my stories)that Jay's nickname was due to his quick short fused temper.Proof of that was when he got into a fight with team mate Dave Mirra when he was on Haro.

Since you're a big fan of Jay's,you can now purchase custom funiture he makes.
