On a sunny autumn day in 1970, in a vacant lot in Long Beach, CA, a young Scot Breithaupt organized the first-ever BMX race. At only 14 years old, he created the Bicycle United Motocross Society (B.U.M.S.) and soon produced the first California State Championships in 1972.
In 1977, SE Racing was born with the goal of producing innovative BMX bikes for riders everywhere. Soon after, SE produced the first race ready high-end aluminum race bike, the JU-6, featuring stiff Floval tubing. This groundbreaking bike was further modified and became the legendary PK Ripper.
From designing BMX tracks, promoting races, establishing BMX publications, and managing race teams, Scot played an integral role in the birth and growth of BMX.
