Major Motion Was formed in
1975 in Southwest Los
Angeles.  The name Major
Motion was inspired by Marshall
"Major" Taylor, a pioneer in
American cycling.

Major Taylor was an African
American cyclist who won many
races, including the 1899 one
mile World Championship in
Montreal.  It was unprecedented
for an American to achieve that
level of performance, as
professional cycling at the turn
of the century was dominated by
"It is my thought that clean living and a strict observance of the golden
rule of true sportsmanship are foundation stones without which a
championship structure cannot be built." - Marshall Taylor in
The Fastest
Bicycle Rider In The World

It is in the spirit of Marshall Taylor's example of clean living, his love of
the sport of cycling and his dedication to excellence that we call
ourselves Major Motion.
