Veteran crooner Engelbert Humperdinck is selling his beloved HARLEY-DAVIDSON motorbike for charity.

The A MAN WITHOUT LOVE singer, 69, will be auctioning the bike on internet website eBAY from 1 August (05).

The prized motorbike is currently worth a staggering $55,000 (GBP30,000) and although Humperdinck is an enthusiastic campaigner for many causes, such as cancer research and AIDS charities, money raised is likely to fund air ambulances.

He says, "I don't ride the bike as much as I used to.

"It's such a beautiful bike it seems a waste for it to stand around not being used.

"I had it shipped from New York to LA and it's got all the extras. I used to ride it up and down the Pacific Highway in California."
