Wayne Rooney’s diamond-encrusted motorcycle up for sale at Bonhams
England’s youngest goal scorer and the youngest player in league history to make 200 appearances, the soccer superstar and Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney’s designed 2012 Lauge Jensen cruiser-style machine custom-made by the Danish motorcycle manufacturer is now being offered for grabs by Bonhams. Encrusted with diamonds, this one-off designer motorcycle that takes its inspiration from the celebration of Rooney’s world-famous overhead goal kick against Manchester City last season, which was described as one of the highest quality and technical excellence, powerful and beautiful, incorporates a number of impressive ‘bling’ features designed by Rooney himself, who stands strong as one of the world’s highest paid footballer among David Beckham, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. This ‘Wayne Rooney’ Lauge Jensen custom bike will go under the hammer at the Bonhams auction of Sport Memorabilia in Chester on February 20th, where collectors, bike and soccer enthusiasts are expected to splurge between $63,510 and $95,250 for Danish charity KidsAid that helps young people affected by illness.
Custom made by Lauge Jensen to Rooney’s specifications, the bike impressively features an autographed ‘No 10’ football shirt mounted and lacquer-sealed onto the petrol tank, a special shift rod incorporating 21 black AA diamonds and a white TW/VS diamond, a rear mounted mudguard featuring artwork depicting Rooney’s celebration of his stunning overhead kick named ‘Best Goal’ of the season.
However, this philanthropic fact that the funds raised will go to kids in Denmark is actually a great way for Rooney, and on behalf of all the players at Manchester united to say ‘thank you’ for the support they received from the Danish people.
Besides, also we have earlier seen some of the other noted custom bikes including the Donald Trump’s custom gold chopper designed by Paul Sr, the one-off custom made Ferrari motorcycle, the $4.8 million handmade diamond Ducati motorcycle owned by billionaire Saudi prince Al waleed bin talal, the King of custom bikes, and the carbon fiber GSX-R 1100.
