SE Bikes History

 

THE GODFATHER OF BICYCLE MOTOCROSS

 

On a sunny autumn day in 1970, in a vacant lot in Long Beach, California, a young Scot Breithaupt organized the first-ever BMX race. At just 14 years old, he went on to create the Bicycle United Motocross Society (B.U.M.S.) and soon produced the first
California State Championships in 1972.

From designing BMX tracks and promoting races to establishing BMX publications and managing race teams, Scot played an integral role in growing the sport.

The 1st Rider Owned BMX Company

SE RACING WAS A PHENOMENON

 

In 1977, Scot founded Scot Enterprises, and soon after, SE Racing was born. The very next year SE produced it’s first-ever bike, the JU-6. Two years later, Perry Kramer, the top rider on the SE team insisted that a gusset be welded to the top tube junction for strength. Once the frame redesign was completed, it became Perry’s signature bike, the “PK Ripper. With over 40 years of production, the PK Ripper is not only the longest running bike in the sport, but is also the most legendary BMX bike of all time.
