The Production Privee Shan hardtail easily stands out as one of the very best that we've ridden, and it's one of the few that can genuinely be classed as a 'do-it-all' bike. Geometry and tubing choices are the key to this frames success, but we also like the fact that the guys at Production Privee have a real keen eye for design. Their products always have a high class finish and their love for classic motorsport and the inspiration that brings is always on show. The two latest finishes for their Shan frame are just another example of that.

The first '917' finish was inspired by the legendary Porsche 917, a car that won the Le Mans 24hr back in the 70's and was later featured in the film 'Le Mans' alongside the even more legendary Steve McQueen.

And for those who don't remember it here's the inspirational car. Despite being made so long ago many still consider it to be the fastest production racing car ever made. It even puts Bugatti's Veyron to shame!

If that's not really in keeping with your style then how about 'The SHAN of Hazzard'...

Which has of course been inspired by the equally legendary Dukes Of Hazard.

If you don't 'get' hardtails then you've obviously never ridden one of these. They are quite simply amazing. And here's a little vid to give you a flavour of what both the bike and company are about. Oh, and it was all filmed right outside their office in Andorra.
