A motorbike designed by Croxteth's very own boy wonder set to fetch between £40,000 and £60,000 when it is sold by Bonhams in Chester this week.
 
The 2012 Lauge Jensen cruiser-style machine, custom-made by the Danish motorcycle manufacturer, will go under the hammer at the Bonhams auction of Sports Memorabilia in Chester, UK, on Wednesday on behalf of KidsAid, a Danish charitable foundation that helps young people affected by illness.
 
The motorcycle incorporates a number of special features designed by the Manchester United and England footballer himself. These include:
  • An autographed ‘No 10’ football shirt mounted and lacquer-sealed. onto the petrol tank
  • A special shift rod incorporating 21 black diamonds and a white diamond
  • Rear mudguard featuring artwork depicting Rooney’s celebration of his spectacular goal against Manchester City in 2011 that helped Manchester United claim that year’s Premiership title and was named ‘Best Goal’ of the season.

Wayne Rooney Shows Off His Diamond Encrusted Chopper'One of a kind with unique rims'

Rooney said: “I was really excited to have the opportunity to be involved in the design of a unique ‘Wayne Rooney’ Lauge Jensen custom bike.
 
“The bike we have designed takes its inspiration from the celebration of my overhead kick against Manchester City last season. The goal has been described by others as being of the highest quality and technical excellence, powerful and beautiful."
Lauge Jensen Ltd is Denmark’s first motorcycle manufacturer since Nimbus ceased production in 1959.
The bike is described as "truly unique and one-of-a-kind' and having 'a raw and clean design with unique rims."

The Bonhams Sports Memorabilia Sale starts at 11am on Wednesday. For more information visit here.
