On Ya Bike Wayne

No, Sir Alex Ferguson is not showing Wayne Rooney the door from Old Trafford.

Instead and autographed and laquer-sealed number 10 shirt belonging to the Manchester United striker is to be mounted on the petrol tank of a very special motorbike that will be going under the hammer next month.

On the rear mud flap will be artwork depicting Rooney’s goal of the season in 2011 against Manchester City that helped United win the Premier League title; this was his perfectly executed overhead kick.

The motorbike which is being promoted as having been designed by Rooney is expected to sell for between GBP40,000 – 60,000 according to Auctioneers Bonhams, with all proceeds going to the charity, Kidsaid. The 2012 Lauge Jensen diamond encrusted custom-made cruiser will go under the hammer at a sports memorabilia auction in Chester on February 20th.

No doubt it will be snapped up by some Manchester United fan somewhere in the world, although a great many fans could think of nothing worse than looking at such shirt on the petrol tank between your legs every time you went out for a ride.
