I'm sorry to hear about this. Isn't this the guy who had pretty much an open invitation to any of us who wanted to go down there, stay with him and ride his bikes? If so, I seem to remember Candiya doing just that and wrote a really nice piece about it on the other site. I emailed him and he invited me to come down anytime. Now I wish that I had taken him up on it.

Whewwww! I was thinking that 307 was mixing up the Lees.

Unicykle? Are you talking about "old man" (Not to be confused with "oldmanriver") from the old site?

Regardless, very sad to hear.

He was in Barra right?
I may have seen some of his bikes down there, which seemed totally out of place, considering the conditions of the dirt roads in town.
Most of the bikes down there are Italika 125ish type bikes, that seem to keep on running, regardless of the heat and salt air.
Sad news indeed.

RIP

many fun rides with Lee years ago.

I remember a story Lee told me about how he got everyone on a ride out of a ticket. The Leo pulled over all the bikes and went to start talking with the lead bike (Lee).

Lee takes of his helmet and the Leo see all that white hair on a 70 yr old guy in full leathers. Takes a second, just givens him a talking to.

I also remember that Lee didn't start riding till he retired? Man he was fast.
