The two keyrings in this listing have original BMW keyfob badges which will have been produced around 50 years ago which we have remounted onto new leather keyfobs as can be seen in the photos .

We have just these 2 keyrings with these badges to offer – when both keyrings have been sold this listing will be cancelled .

This listing is for just one keyring .

Original keyrings and keyfob badges produced specifically for BMW motorcycles are rare items – we have listed very few for sale over the years .

These two badges are both in excellent condition .

In the 1960s almost all keyrings for the world’s cars & motorcycles were made in England – it was quite an industry .

Very few 1960s manufacturers seem to have been bothered to produce keyrings for motorcycles ( particularly BMW bikes which were rare on British roads at the time )

Only SCHALL & AE Wassell produced motorcycle keyrings in any quantity at the time .

These nickel plated BMW badges were finished in coach enamel which was actually hand applied – rather than the usual vitreous enamel .

In that case each badge is very slightly different – hardly noticeable unless you have a couple of badges side by side .

Made in England by SCHALL ( SC HALL ) who probably didn’t make many of these keyrings for BMW bikes at the time .

In that case they probably considered that it was not worthwhile setting up to produce a run of vitreous enamel badges and the badges were simply enamelled by hand instead .

Interestingly another British keyring manufacturer ( AE Wassell of Birmingham who specialised in producing motorcycle keyrings ) did produce some BMW motorcycle keyrings with the same badge design but enamelled in vitreous enamel – we have only ever seen one example of one of those keyrings .

It is possible that Wassells may have been producing keyrings slightly earlier than SCHALL and that Wassell’s badge dies were then bought by SCHALL .
