OAK RIDGE (WATE) – A specially made bicycle, recently stolen, has been returned to a man who's legally blind and depends on the bike to get around.

Tim Collins' bicycle was stolen from the Books-A-Million parking lot in Oak Ridge last week.

He says police called him with the good news. A man who dropped it off with police said he bought the bike from someone else.

Collins says the bike is banged up, but he's glad to have it.

"I really didn't think I'd ever see it again," said Collins. "I was just blown away that somebody would take something so unusual because there's no way to hide it."

The one-of-a-kind bike is worth more than $1800.
