When Frank Myers moved from South Carolina to Tampa 34 years ago, he did so with the intention of adopting the Buccaneers, then a newly-formed team, as his own. More than three decades later, Myers still takes pride in wearing pewter in red, both on his back and on the road.
Myers has built a custom Buccaneer motorcycle, with a logo on the rear and skeleton handlebars. While riding it, he wears a Buccaneer helmet reminiscent of the helmet the team sported during their Super Bowl championship.
"It's a 2007 Honda VTX1300C," Myers said of his motorcycle. "I got the speedometer dash done and then I got to thinking. Everybody says to make your bike your own and I've been a big Buccaneer fan, so I decided that I wanted to build a Buccaneer bike.
"It took about three and a half to four years to build."
Myers' motorcycle, which can be seen above, has drawn rave reviews from Buccaneers fans, along with those who don't follow the team.
"As soon as I got it done, people would say stuff," he said. "I got the paint done up in South Carolina and we went up to West Virginia and it was a big hit up there."
Myers' wife said there could be another custom Buccaneer motorcycle in the makings, too. She wants her motorcycle to be customized in orange and white with the Buccaneers' old logo, Bucco Bruce.
