We do not hold a licence which allows us to reproduce the Honda logo and none of the Honda keyrings listed here in this website shop feature badges with the Honda logo which have been made by us.
The keyring in this listing has an original badge which is around 50 years old.
A superb early Honda motorcycle keyfob badge which we have remounted onto a new leather keyfob in full grain black leather as can be seen in the photos.
The vitreous enamel badge really looks it’s age whilst being in superlative condition !
The translucent deep red vitreous enamel is absolutely perfect and as fresh as the day it was made – you can see through it as though it is strawberry jam !
There is a slight smudge of red enamel in the white enamel beneath ‘HM’ – the vitreous enamel was hand laid and a tiny drip of molten red enamel will have caused this whilst the badge was being made.
These early gilt badges mellow to give this aged appearance which would be impossible to achieve by artificial means – it comes about through age & use.
‘BRITISH MADE’ proudly cast into the back of the badge – what an irony as these bikes were about to decimate the British motorcycle industry .
The badge is original & correct for use with any 1960s Honda motorcycle – or could be used as a ‘retro’ keyring with a much more modern bike.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled.
Maybe expensive – but worth every penny .
You won’t find another badge like this one in a hurry.
