The bike built for the 7 foot 6 inch tall basketball player couldn't have been easy for the thief to sell or even ride and was recovered by police.

"I've got to figure out how to get the seat back up where it belongs. They tried to adjust it for them to ride," Bradley said Thursday. "It's not for the average person, shall we say."

A random search of a residence by state probation and parole officials turned up the bike Thursday afternoon, police said. Joshua Carter, 34, was arrested for investigation of possession of stolen property and theft, Murray Police Sgt. Brian Wright said.
