  • Van Anz ordered a 2hp motor from a Chinese manufacturer and rigged it up to a regular bike frame.
  • The first time Van Anz took it out in public, a stranger at a Los Angeles eatery offered to buy it for $5,000 in cash.
  • …now sells 400 bikes a year to the likes of Ashton Kutcher, Robert Downey Jr. and Robin Williams.
  • Starting at $3,000, prices for custom-painted models can run as high as $10,000.
