We are not licensed by Triumph Motorcycles to reproduce the Triumph logo and none of the keyrings listed here for sale in this website shop feature Triumph keyfob badges with the Triumph logo which have been made by us.

The keyring in this listing has an original badge which is around 50 years old.

Triumph motorcycle keyrings do not come much better than this one !

This badge is an original item dating from the 1960s and was made by Melsom Products Ltd of Birmingham – their details are cast into the back of the badge.

This nickel plated badge with cobalt blue vitreous enamelling is in superb condition and is the badge which every owner wants and is THE keyfob badge which epitomises Triumph Motorcycle keyrings.

Very seldom do we come across one of these badges in this condition – almost all of the few that remain are damaged or the enamel is badly chipped.

This badge does have two tiny enamel chips – but you need a magnifying glass to see them – almost invisible when viewed at life size.

We have never seen a mint example of this badge over the last 10 years.

These keyrings led a hard life being used on performance motorcycles in all weathers and went wherever the owner went .

The original leather keyfob which this badge had been attached to can only be described as mortal remains – it was beyond redemption.

The badge is so outstanding that we set to and remounted it onto a new leather keyfob exactly like the original melsom keyflix keyfob which it had originally been mounted onto – using the same grade of stiff tan leather and keyfob shape as the original .

So here is an original Triumph Motorcycle cobalt blue keyfob badge remounted onto new leather and ready for another 50 years of service- literally Triumph jewellery.

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive- we cannot produce another one until we find another badge like this one which could take a long while.

When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled.
