£45.00

1 in stock

A new vitreous enamel Laverda keyfob badge which will have been produced in Birmingham within the last few years which we have mounted onto a new leather keyfob as can be seen in the photos .

This is not an original vintage badge – it will have been produced just a few years ago and is not to be confused with an original vintage badge from the 1970s – this badge was made much later.

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

Superb quality ‘old school’ vitreous enamel badges like these were produced in Birmingham  – probably from the original 1970s badge dies – and were available up until quite recently .

We have remounted this badge onto a new leather keyfob in black saddlery hide .

Sadly vitreous enamel badges like this one are apparently no longer produced in England .

This badge is identical to the original keyfob badges which were produced in the 1970s – but this badge is not an original 1970s badge, it was produced much later .

‘MADE IN ENGLAND’ cast into the back of the badge .

New reproduction badges will now usually be produced in modern resin based enamel – not vitreous enamel like this one , and will not have ‘MADE IN ENGLAND’ cast into the back of the badge because the badge will not have been made in England .

Maybe one day in the future beautiful quality vitreous enamel badges like these will once again be made in England ……………………..but the areas where the workshops once stood have now generally been built over with housing estates and the craftsmen with their knowledge and skills have gone .

This badge is correct for 1968 onwards Laverda motorcycles including late 1960s 650cc, early 1970s 750cc, mid 1970s Laverda 1000 leading onto Laverda Jota until late 1980s.

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
