Toxic Team 1989.
For the anonymous commenter who requested some Toxic a couple of weeks ago, here you go. I went with a team ad instead of a wheel ad because I didn't want just wheels and dead fish. Holler if you did specifically want an ad with only a photo of the wheels.
Toxic was a company based in Maryland who sponsored Dave Crabb, Bernie O'Dowd, Ken Fillion, Denny Riordon and a few others. Jim "Murf" Murphy rode for them after Alva fell apart, too. They totally played up the toxic image with bright neon colors and gross imagery. Even the wheels had names like Toxic Waste and Toxic Poison. Pretty clever.
The photos are by Matt Horner, Grant Brittain and Sin Egelja.
