Motorcycle Charm VINTAGE
This is a spectacularly well made and detailed charm, the best bike charm I have ever seen. My knowledge of motorbikes is limited so I can't tell you what model it is but it reminds me of a Norton or a Triumph. Once having had black enamel seat and tank (the remnants of which are just visible) this miniature motorbike now has a very nice aged patina. The bike could be polished to a shiny new finish but that, I always think with old charms, would be a real shame.
