Retired Kansas Man Wins Case Custom Chopper

won in a sweepstakes conducted by W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Co.

Bradford,
PA (March 29, 2006) – W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company is pleased
to announce Richard Lowry of Emporia, Kansas, as the winner of the Case
Custom Chopper Sweepstakes. Lowry was randomly selected from over
30,000 entrants in the contest to receive the Chopper, a Case-themed
motorcycle designed and crafted by Orange County Choppers™. Case
officials traveled to Kansas to present the Chopper to Lowry.

Lowry is a retired railroad conductor who found out about the sweepstakes while looking on the Case website, www.wrcase.com, for a knife. Lowry says he watches the television show American Chopper
regularly and has a few older motorcycles. He also owns some Case
knives and has a hard time believing that he won the Chopper. “The only
thing I ever won was a watermelon,” says Lowry.

Lowry’s
entire family was on hand when Case delivered the chopper to his rural
home in Kansas. He had been up since 4 a.m. that morning awaiting the
chopper and told his son, “I’ll believe it, when I see it.” Lowry is
unsure of what his future plans are for the bike.

In
addition to the grand prize, Case awarded prize packages to six first
place winners. The prize packages included a Case knife, Case Custom
Chopper T-shirt, and Case Custom Chopper hat. Those winners were Tommy
Henry of Sulphur Springs, TX, Phillip Carroll of Bowdon, GA, Jay
Johnson of Cookeville, TN, Betty Allen of London, KY, Patrick Lee of
Douglasville, GA and Henry Lindsey of Saraland, AL. Carroll registered
for the sweepstakes at the Case Custom Chopper Tour event held at
Messer Hardware in Bowdon, GA and Johnson registered at the Highland
Hardware Chopper Tour stop in Cookeville, TN. All other winners,
including Lowry, entered on the Case website.

The
Case Custom Chopper Sweepstakes ended on December 30th, 2005.  The
entrants were gathered via an online registration on the company’s
website, and through a Case Custom Chopper summer tour. The tour made
over 70 stops in 17 states at Case Authorized Dealers and other
locations. The sweepstakes was designed to help introduce the brand to
new consumers. W. R. Case has produced pocketknives for Orange County
Choppers™ under an exclusive licensing agreement since 2004.

silver paint design with knife blade accents.  A red Case logo appears
on the gas tank and fenders, while the front fender includes a

cleaner covers display Case XX and tang stamp markings, while the
custom mirror brackets replicate opened Case knives.
