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 is an original vintage item dating from the 1960s.
We have just this one example of this very scarce keyring to offer.
This is only the 3rd or 4th of these original Melsom Products Triumph Keyflix keyrings which we have ever listed .
This is an original keyring dating from the 1960s and was made by Melsom Products Ltd of Birmingham at the time – their details are cast onto the back of the badge.
These Melsom Products keyrings were the industry standard motorcycle keyring of the time – they are the ones which were most commonly used with the bikes and the ones which owners now strive to find.
Very few of these Melsom keyrings for Triumph motorcycles have survived – let alone in serviceable condition like this one.
The reason for this is easy to guess :- the bikes were used in anger in the 1960s and were not cosseted classics as they often are today. The keyrings received similar use/abuse with life on the open road not being very conducive to longevity.
This keyring is in well used condition as can be seen from the photos – but this patina of use is something which many owners now appreciate and can only come about as a result of age and use.
The vitreous enamel badge in blue enamel is in very good condition and unusually without any enamel chips whatsover.
The keyfob is in genuine tan leather which has become pleasingly polished with use and with Melsom’s trademark ‘Keyflix’ embossed into the leather beneath the badge.
The stitching is all intact & tight apart from the short horizontal section at the top of the keyfob – unlikely to give way in the near future but we will reinforce with additional stitches if you ask ( no extra charge but will be visible )
This keyring is original & correct for any 1960s Triumph motorcycle.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive- the price reflects what we have had to pay for it in order to put it into stock.
Original Melsom Triumph motorcycle keyrings are the final cherry on the cake and can increase the value of the bike which they are put with by many times the cost of the keyring.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled.
