An Eastern Iowa man is hoping things turn around -- and soon.

Someone stole his one-of-a kind bike. This was his only form of transportation.

Cedar Falls police are asking the public for help.

A month ago from today someone stole a rare motorized-bike from Brett Garbes's front porch.

Brett has been battling stomach cancer and has a clogged artery, so he struggles walking far distances.

He said he even has a hard time walking up the stairs to his home and can't ride a normal bike.

He doesn't have the money to buy a car right now.

And without his motorized-bike, he's had to rely on friends and the bus to get around.

Brett's bike was worth at least one thousand one hundred dollars.

He actually bought this bike to replace one he made that broke down.

And said he's been worried about loosing his job because it's been hard to get around. 

If you think you might have seen this bike or have any information on where it might be, call Cedar Falls Police or Cedar Valley Crime Stoppers.
