Wayne was approached by the danish motorcycle designer Lauge Jenson to help him design a unique bike that could be auctioned for charity. Yesterday the bike was auctioned at Bonhams Auction House in Chester and managed to raise £43,250 for the Kidsaid Charity, a charity that helps children going through traumatic times.
The end result was a spectacular one-off bike that features an image of his iconic celebration after his stunning overhead-kick winner against manchester city in 2011. Other features includes a signed Rooney Manchester United No 10 shirt on the petrol tank, a special shift rod with 22 encrusted diamonds and a front mudguard with WR10 on it. The bike accelerates from 0-62mph in around four seconds and reach a top speed of 155mph.
Wayne said: ‘When first approached about the possibility of being involved in the design of a unique “Wayne Rooney” Lauge Jensen custom bike I was really excited. The bike we have designed takes its inspiration from the celebration of my overhead kick against Manchester City. I am really happy with the finished article but more importantly I am delighted that I could help raise so much money for Kidsaid.’
