Chris Day’s Freestyle Photo Album 1986

Chris has been digging through his old stuff lately and he brought this over yesterday. Psyched to reminisce, thought some of you might enjoy also.

Re: Chris Day’s Freestyle Photo Album 1986

I saw on snakebite's instagram that he recently sold he Dirt Bros frame with matching Peregrine Q bars on Ebay.Wondering whoever purchased it is a member on here.

Would you trust a lazy drunk to weld up a frame that will be ridden hard?

A mock Homeboy cover featuring Chris (circa 1987), unfortunately Wizard Publications went with the skate pic instead.

NICE. I can't wait to see more.
I love when old riders dig up their old photos. We lived so much with the magazine pics back then, It's great to see their own perspective and memories.

And the "Freestyle" magazine decal from when the name changed for 1 issue - that's a rarity!

Chris Day ripped.  Style for miles.  One of those guys who just looked good on a bike.


I suck at dirt jumping.

Cool stuff! I was out of freestyle by 89 but always kept current through the mags and Chris Day was a rider I remember hearing alot about into the 90's. Love those Bad Boy Club decals! cool

Chris saved some clippings of his friends and influences, also. Here’s one of Nourie from the San Diego newspaper.
