A diamond-encrusted 155mph motorbike designed by Wayne Rooney was sold for 109,700 pounds by an anonymous bidder on an eBay charity auction.

The bike features the 26-year-old footie star's celebration after his amazing overhead goal against rival Manchester City in February 2011, which helped his team claim the title in 2011 with a 2-1 win at Old Trafford.

"A unique Lauge Jensen motorcycle designed by world-famous footballer Wayne Rooney and custom-made by Danish motorcycle manufacturer Lauge Jensen, this motorcycle is truly unique and one-of-a-kind," the Daily Mail quoted a description of the bike on eBay.

"The motorcycle has a raw and clean design with unique rims. Wayne Rooney has donated one of his player jerseys with his personal signature which has been mounted onto the petrol tank and lacquer sealed to preserve the jersey.

"Wayne Rooney together with Lauge Jensen has designed a special shift rod with 21 black diamonds and one white diamond. Wayne Rooney's picture of his victory goal against Manchester City is paint brushed on to the rear fender. The goal was voted as the best goal in Premier League 2012 season," it said.

The cash from the winning bidder will be going to KidsAid charity dedicated to helping children who have suffered "traumatic events" - from illnesses to family breakdown - in their lives.

"I am delighted to be involved in this unique fund raising project," Rooney said.

"When first approached about the possibility of being involved in the design of a unique Wayne Rooney Lauge Jensen World famous custom bike I was really excited to have the opportunity to be involved," he added.

A flash custom-made chopper, capable of more than 60mph in under four seconds and made by Danish manufacturers Lauge Jensen, had attracted 101 bids on eBay. (ANI)
