2012 Lauge Jensen 'Wayne Rooney' Custom Motorcycle - Kids Aid Charity
Designed by Manchester United's world-famous striker, Wayne Rooney, and custom-made by Danish motorcycle manufacturer, Lauge Jensen, this beautiful cruiser-style motorcycle is truly unique.
Founded only a few years ago by established custom-bike builder, Uffe Lauge Jensen, Lauge Jensen Ltd is Denmark's first motorcycle manufacturer since Nimbus ceased production in 1959. The company specialises in manufacturing bespoke v-twin-engined motorcycles for Danish and international buyers, with prices starting at around £56,000. Most of the parts are designed by Uffe himself and produced specially for his company, while the rest are carefully selected high-quality products sourced from the international custom-bike industry. Lauge Jensen motorcycles are 'Euro 3' certified and type approved.
For this special project Wayne Rooney donated one of his autographed 'No.10' jerseys, which has been mounted on the petrol tank and lacquer sealed to preserve it. In addition, Wayne, together with Uffe Lauge Jensen, designed a special shift rod with 21 black AA diamonds and one white TW/VS diamond.
'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 to have the opportunity to be involved,' said Wayne. '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, technical excellence, powerful and beautiful. I hope you will agree that the bike is all of this and more.'
Artwork depicting Wayne's celebration following his spectacular strike against Manchester City - voted 'Best Goal' in the Premier League 2011 season - is reproduced on the rear mudguard. Wayne's wonderful goal helped Manchester United claim the 2011 Premiership title with a 2-1 win at Old Trafford in February.

Footnotes

  • All the money from the sale of this motorcycle will go to the Danish charitable foundation 'KidsAid', which since 2000 has raised money through various charity events; all with the purpose of making everyday lives of children affected by illness a little more enjoyable. 'The fact that the funds raised will go to kids in Denmark is a great way for me on behalf of all the players at Manchester United to say "thank you" for the support we receive from the Danish people,' said Wayne. KidsAid is probably best known for GolfAid, which is an annual event, where Danish celebrities fight to become the unofficial Danish Golf Champion.
