I have a few SE Racing jerseys and would like to know if they can be set to a certain period??

Of course I would love to have a red/yellow Jersey but those seem to be impossible to find or purchase.

Ok SE nerds....help me out!! :bowdownAll:

1st up is a Youth Large with Ryder modeling it! M&M tag, Factory Ace logo on chest, arms and back with M&M Racing logo on both arms.

2nd is a Large with M&M tag. This one says BMX Innovations on the chest and both arms and no logo on the back.

3rd is a Adult Small, no name on the tag. SE Racing logo on the front and back, SE Racing logo with wings on both shoulders/arms. I got this off of Sander back in the day and came in a crusty old bag that was sealed when I got it.

Last but not least is the one I think is the oldest out of the bunch?? No size but has a SE Racing BMX Innovations Action Wear tag. SE Racing BMX Innovations logo on chest and back, long SE Racing BMX Innovations logos and M&M Apparel logos on both arms.

Jon, I think the winged one your little guy is wearing may be circa 84/85-ish. Toby's wearing a similar one on the Feb '85 BMX Plus cover.

I dig the other winged myself with the solid brown sleeves.

4
2
1
3.

Haha! He turns 2 (already) in June! He's a little monster and loves when we go down to the basement to work and look at the bikes!

He's gonna be on a SE ride very soon!

Thanks guys with helping with the years on the jerseys!

The first SE Jerseys were red with a gold yoke (This is 77ish)

I believe (though my certainty is only about 90%) that the Blue with Brown yoke with the SE bubble logo just above the elbow on upper arm is the first of the blue and brown jerseys. This would be 1978/early 79

by the way... the first version of the helmet wings kicked in about here too.

For a long time, I thought these were the first Blue & Brown Jersey, they have "BMX innovations" coming down off the shoulder, but I now believe these were probably the 2nd, hot on the heels of the above. 79-80. There is also a version of this jersey with full brown sleeves, rather than brown yoke on blue as pictured here. The full brown sleeves might have been the commercial release for non-factory riders, though I haven't really searched definitively to find if that is the case.

Then... the first Blue with Brown yoke with the wings... These set the bar so high for bmx aesthetics imo. 81 I'll say.

Then... this version of the winged. I think this is one of the sickest old school ad photos ever:

So that's the rough order up to the mid 80's. There may have been other versions I've missed, and there were definitely some sort of "practice jersey" versions, like Rupe is wearing here:

I've had a few beers. I might have to edit the time line tomorrow. :wink:

Whoa Steve! Damn! That's some serious history dropped!

Wish I could find a red/yellow for my collection, even though I always think brown/blue when I think SE.

Thanks for the lesson and some right click SAVE pics for the files!

Cheers!

Here is the best pic I have of me in my first SE jersey.

IMG_0009.jpg

I remember it wasn't made from the typical "jersey" material, but a solid cotton blend. Pretty darn warm in the summer.

I'm thinking it was some kind of cold weather jersey, or, like Steve mentioned with Rupe's, a practice jersey.

I remember wearing it to middle school with such pride.

:)

I got it around the same time as my Quad. 82-83. But who knows how long it was sitting in the shop before I got it.

Here is the jersey I got when I became a member of the local Hot Shop Team. This was in '82 and I wore mine to high school and then college when I started in '83. Wore this baby proudly. The only reason I don't were it now is it shrunk too much... :whistling:
