Bunch of ***** no-nothings is what you guys are.



The Wakan has an S&S sporty engine, and a french frame, and is intended to be built here in the USA. so far, 3 exist.



Peter Egan did a nicely detailed article on the Wakan, in the 4/07 Cycle World. He had to travel far away to test ride it, all the way to Viola, WIsconsin.

It does look like a Sporty motor with the four cams but they don't look like Sporty heads and 100 cubes is big for a XL based engine. Seems to work though, looks and sounds the shizz.



Best thing out of France since pomme de terre frites avec du catsop

Those are S&S heads on the thing. If you click on the picture you can see the branding on the heads. I think a Buell would be about the same and wouldn't stink of old wine.

Well, that explains why France went to such lengths to prevent another German build up to ensure another world war didn't take place...oh wait.

American Iron had a big write up on this bike a few issues back. They really liked it. I suspect that has as much to do with the fact that it's running a clone of the HD Evo engine as anything else. The banner on the mag cover does read, after all: "For People Who Love Harley-Davidsons." They should change it to include: "and Stuff Sorta Like Harley Davidsons."

why would anyone buy anything french? Disgusting, despicable people who revel in causing pain and discomfort to others...



not to mention, a bike that runs away at the slightest fear of a corner isn't something I'd want.
