NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
A really superb 50 year old Norton keyring in almost mint condition- vintage Norton keyrings do not get any better than this one !
If you demand perfection – then this is it.
The nickel plated vitreous enamel badge is mounted onto a genuine tan leather keyfob.
Made by Melsom Products Ltd of Birmingham at the time – Melsom’s details are cast into the back of the badge and their ‘keyflix’ trademark is embossed into the leather keyfob beneath the badge.
In the 1970s almost all car & bike keyrings were made in England – it was quite an industry,
Despite Melsom Products being a very prolific manufacturer of keyrings for cars and bikes in the 1960s this is the only original example in this condition of one of their Norton keyrings which we have ever seen and listed over the last 10 years .
The reason for this will be that the keyrings were made to be used on open bikes in all weathers and very few original keyrings will have survived intact.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive and is original & correct for use with any 1960s Norton bike – but is far too good to use apart from on Sundays !
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled. 00/56 05/20
