We have just a few of these original AJS keyfob badges which we have mounted onto new keyfobs in full grain black leather as can be seen in the photos.
These badges are original & correct for use with all Wolverhampton built AJS four stroke motorcycles up to 1969 .
These badges are brand new original old stock items dating from the 1960s which came to us from the closed leatherworks of Heath Machin & Co. of Walsall who ( as well as making their own keyrings ) mounted keyfob badges onto leather keyfobs for Melsom Products Ltd of Birmingham whose name appears on the back of the badges.
At the time of Heath & Machin closing – these badges had not yet been mounted onto leather keyfobs .
Melsom Products Ltd were the most famous and prolific of British car & motorcycle keyring manufacturers during the 1960s and very early 1970s .
We had always assumed that Melsoms mounted their badges onto their own leather keyfobs – and it has taken us 10 years to discover that this was not always the case.
Heath Machin & Co. were bought out by new owners in the very early 1970s ( coinciding with Melsom’s demise ) and continued making small leather goods into the 1990s.
When all the keyrings with these badges have been sold then this listing will be cancelled.
