Diamond-studded Motorbike designed by Wayne Rooney

It comes as a surprise to me, to be honest, that Wayne Rooney has recently designed a staggering chopper. I’m not into football really, but I’m sure we all know that he’s one of the best strikers in the world. Still, a football player to pen down a bike, which, I have to admit, is gorgeous, is a rare thing indeed, worthy of mentioning.

Interestingly enough, the main ideas behind the design of this diamond-encrusted custom chopper were reportedly drawn from his overhead kick which had settled the score of the Manchester derby at Old Trafford back in February 2011. This 2012 Lauge Jensen cruiser-style machine, at the base of the 2012 Lauge Jensen Wayne Rooney Custom Motorcycle, was custom manufactured by Lauge Jensen, Danish motorcycle builder, and boasts with the ability to storm from naught to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds.

The visual aspects that differentiate it from the regular models are quite numerous, most of them designed by Wayne Rooney himself – an autographed No 10 football shirt which was fitted and lacquer-sealed on the bike’s petrol tank, rear mudguard boasting an artwork the depicts Rooney’s celebration of his famous goal against Manchester City and a special shift rod which incorporates 21 black AA diamond and a white TW/VS one. The respective was the season’s “Best Goal” and one of the finest goals in the history of the Premier League of all time.

The footballer himself happily describes: “I was really excited to have the opportunity to be involved in the design of a unique Wayne Rooney Lauge Jensen custom bike. The goal has been described by others as being of the highest quality, technical excellence, powerful and beautiful. I hope you will agree that the bike is all of this and more.”

In the end, we’ve learnt the bike is going to be offered at the Bonhams auction of Sports Memorabilia on February 20, expected to fetch somewhere between £40,000 (around $63,000) and £60,000 ($95,000). The proceeds will reportedly be donated to the Danish charity KidsAid, a foundation which deals with the support of young individuals affected by illness.
