| Julie Tomlinson and her XS400
Country of Origin: Japan
Engine: 400cc Twin
Owner: Julie Tomlinson, Costa Mesa
The Good 'ol Boy's Club has been breached, the Glass Ceiling shattered and the Gender Barrier crushed - Thank God! I think women can bring a new level of sophistication to our group, or at least make some of us shower before we show up next month.
Congratulations to Julie Tomlinson of Costa Mesa for winning Bike of the Month with her custom 1977 Yamaha XS400 cafe racer.
Julie turned many heads when she rolled in with her gang of three cafe racers, they all looked good, but most of us liked that number 46.
Julie has owned the bike for about 2 years. Although it looks the same as it did when they bought it, the engine has be completely gone through and improved. Julie was riding with James Garvey who was on a 1976 Yamaha RD400 two-stroke. Their friend Jimmy was on a 1974 Honda CB750. All three bikes were great rides.
Check out all the pictures in the February Gallery. Thank you Julie and the gang for coming to the meet today.
