1976 The first incarnation of SE (Scott Enterprises) Racing occured in 1976 when it occured to Scott Breithaupt that he could fund his own BMX Racing tour by making and selling SE t-shirts, caps, jersies, and stickers pack along the way. Scot says SE did close to half a million dollar of business in their first year, and they didn't even have a product yet. SE riders were temporarily set up on Mongoose frames and Skyway Tuff Whells.

1999 Press release: October 21, 1999. SE Racing Trademarks Change Hands. After 23 years, the SE Racing, trademarks are no longer controlled by it's founders. As a result the current U.S. manufacturing operation has closed its doors, shut down, history, finished, adios muchachos, GONE!!! Recently, Mike Devitt, who has run the company for many years, an outside investor, and SE's founder, Scot Breithaupt made a bid to buy out the foreign partners. A deal could not be struck, so they pulled the plug as of October 15th, 1999. The entire staff will leave the company to create a new brand. All the SE machinery and fixtures will be used for the new venture. Devitt says, "Our crew has been together for over 20 years, Sal Correa, shop foreman and his welding wizards, the sales guys, and I are anxious to get the new brand rolling. Our new partner, and Scot, and myself will start the new venture immediately. We will attack the BMX, jumping-freestyle and MTB markets with the same top quality innovations and promotions that made SE a powerhouse in the 70s and 80s. Diehard SE fanatics can still count on us, they will be blown away by the new bikes. A new name, a new company, a new challenge!"
