Beck's Hybrids Custom Orange County Choppers Motorcycle Winner Revealed

$80,043 Raised for the We Care for Orphans Adoption Fun

March 1, 2012

Atlanta, Indiana - For the past six-and-a half months, Beck's Hybrids two custom Orange County Choppers (OCC) motorcycles have toured the Midwest, visiting more than 15 events and tradeshows. Today, Beck's Hybrids is pleased to announce the winner of the We Care for Orphans Adoption Fund Sweepstakes is Greg Lundquist from Wabash, Ind.

"We couldn't be more excited to award Greg with one of the most unique custom choppers," said Scott Beck, vice president of Beck's Hybrids. "With the help of farmers, bike enthusiasts and the agricultural community, we've raised a total of $80,043. From the beginning of the sweepstakes, it has been our desire to help provide as many families with the resources they need to make their adoption a reality. More than 20 families will benefit from the funds raised."

Lundquist has been in sales at Agro-Chem , a distributor in agricultural chemicals, in Wabash, Ind., for 37 years. He registered for the OCC chopper at the IN-IL Farm and Outdoor Power Equipment Show on December 15, 2011. The chopper Lundquist will receive features a unique, custom paint job. An American flag with the saying "God Bless the American Farmer," flies on the gas tank, along with an image of a two-row horse drawn planter, which is how the first Beck's Superior Hybrids seed corn was planted.

"When I received the call saying I won the bike, I thought it was a prank," said Lundquist. "I entered the sweepstakes mainly for the charity, never thinking I had a chance to win. I just wanted to donate $20 to a good cause that helps orphaned children in need. And even though I've never driven a motorcycle, I think I'm going to have to learn!"

There are 143 million orphaned children worldwide. The We Care for Orphans Adoption Fund helps unite orphaned children with loving families. The average cost to adopt is around $30,000. The bikes were unveiled on July 28, 2011 in front of nearly 1,000 customers, dealers and employees. The commemorative reverse trike was featured on the hit Discovery Channel TV show, American Chopper last fall and will remain at the Beck's headquarters.
