This must be one of the rarest motorcycle keyrings of all time – an original Hesketh keyring .
Not surprisingly we have never seen another example over the last 10 years- this is the only one which we have ever seen.
The keyring is in genuine black leather with ‘HESKETH’ and the coat of arms embossed in gold.
We would think that this keyring dates from the early 1980s.
The keyring is in fair condition but the leather loop at the top of the keyring which the splitring passes through has been damaged and we have bonded it back into place as can be seen in the close-up photo .
In that case we would not regard the keyring as being a serviceable item which could be used without a more permanent repair- so the keyring is described as a collector’s item and is more suitable for preserving in a collection than actually being used on a motorcycle.
Hesketh motorcycles was formed by Alexander, 3rd Lord Hesketh in order to develop a prototype in 1980.
After 2 variations of the business had failed, the marque was maintained and improved by Broom Engineering in Northamptonshire.
In 2013 the marque was then reincarnated and became based in Kingswood in Surrey.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled.
