Original Vintage & Restored Leather Keyrings for Classic Cars & Motorcycles


Honda motorcycle – original early 1970s vitreous enamel badge remounted onto a new leather keyfob

NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered

An original Honda keyfob badge  which we would think will have been produced in the early 1970s which we have remounted onto a new leather keyfob as can be seen in the photos .

We have just this one example of this keyring with this badge to offer – when this keyring has been sold this listing will be cancelled.

We don’t often list original 50 -odd year old Honda motorcycle keyfob badges in this condition .

This superb Honda motorcycle vitreous enamel badge is in mint condition ( apart from the nickel plating on the back of the badge being rather thin ) and we have remounted it onto a new keyfob in black saddlery hide .

The nickel plating on the back of the badge is so thin that the base metal shows through – but this hardly matters !

No maker’s mark on the back ( not unusual ) but almost certainly produced in Birmingham .

The badge is relatively small ( as befits a motorcycle ) and looks as though it could have been made by AE Wassell of Birmingham – but so far as we are aware Wassells had closed by the early 1970s .

In the 1970s almost all car & motorcycle keyrings were produced in England – it was quite an industry .

The original Honda motorcycle keyrings and keyfob badges which we see are usually damaged or worn  – they were used on open motorcycles in all weathers and suffered accordingly .

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive SMOSO  00/59   06/24
