A motorcycle designed by Manchester United star Wayne Rooney could fetch between £40,000 and £60,000 when it is sold by Bonhams in aid of charity this week.

The 2012 Lauge Jensen cruiser-style machine will go under the hammer at the Bonhams auction of Sports Memorabilia in Chester on Wednesday.

  • 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.
