Villy Custom: Design Your Own Cruiser Bike
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Shark Tank
I was telling Joyce about these cool custom cruiser bikes that I saw on Shark Tank.
At Villy Customs, you can choose from a billion combination of colors and styles to make a cruiser bike that's a fashion statement. Most bikes run in the $600-$700 range, though they do have more expensive ones.
It was very humbling, exciting, and something that I wish I could do over again. I know I could do a much better job and present our product much better. I also think I took it too seriously and should’ve been myself more, but hindsight is 20-20.
Great looking product. I'm stashing this.
I just watched this episode last night. Really liked his company, and it was cool to see him get some funding.
I really dig the backstories from those who have been on Shark Tank. Thanks for sharing this one, hadn't read it. Do you know of any other backstories?
I don't know any of the other backstories, but his own story indicates that only 50 stories air out of 10,000 submitted. Wow!
I do find their message boards fascinating: http://abc.go.com/shows/shark-tank/discuss
You can also watch all the back episodes on the website.
