BREMERTON, Wash. -- A local bike shop is on a mission to put the bells and whistles on a souped-up ride for a very special customer.

Pablo Lozano shared his story  on Q13 News Tuesday night -- someone stole his trike outside his job at the Fred Meyer store in Bremerton. It's a ride he desperately needs, because Pablo is disabled and has been since suffering a stroke and meningitis as a child. Many in Bremerton are use to seeing Pablo riding to and from his job on his trike. But a thief or thieves took his mode of transportation away from him.

Seattle E-Bike saw the story on Q13 News and volunteered to build Pablo a new and improved trike -- and they are getting ready for the big delivery Saturday.

The tricked-out trike even got the thumbs-up from talk show host Conan O'Brien, who happened to be in Seattle and stopped by the shop Friday, surprising the E-Bike team and taking photos in support of Pablo and his new ride.

The trike is customized just for Pablo -- including special features like left-hand controls, since he can't use his right hand and a special security system.

Meanwhile, the Bremerton community is coming together to look for Pablo's original, stolen bike.  On Friday, a viewer sent us a photo of a bike that looks like Pablo's outside of a Target store in Silverdale. Investigators are looking into it.
