Sad news began to circulate last night that downtown icon and bike pimper extraordinaire “Sho Nuff” had died following a scooter accident. Today, the folks over at Goodnight Raleigh spoke with his daughter, and confirmed that it is indeed true.
Well known for his leopard print bike and hand-sewn custom outfits, Russell Lee, better known as Sho Nuff, was a joy to talk to when crossing paths. He had recently purchased a new scooter with plans to do it up in style. He would take the time to stop and talk to anyone that wanted to learn about his bike, and was often seen riding around on First Fridays, usually stopping hang out with the crowds.
His family has been unable to locate a life insurance policy, and could use help covering the final expenses. Visit Goodnight Raleigh’s post on Sho Nuff to find out how you can help.
