MANCHESTER, N.H. (CBS) – Thanks to the generosity of the community, Curt Payne has a new bicycle.

Payne, an Army veteran well-known for cleaning up trash around Manchester, N.H., had his specialized bike stolen last week. The bike is the only means of transportation for Payne, who was permanently disabled after a near-fatal car crash in 2001.

In recent days, anonymous donors, relatives, and children who ran a lemonade stand in support of Payne raised more than $1,000. Thanks to the donations, Payne picked up a new bicycle on Saturday.

The Bike Barn in Manchester added extra gadgets at no additional charge. Last year alone Payne put 900 miles on his bike.
