I got a set of keys with my 2001 Honda Shadow but can't figure out what this key would be to. Maybe it had saddlebags on it at one time? Any other thoughts?

Probably a disc lock the P.O. had at one time.

I'll go along with Agent9, I think either a disk lock or U-lock dating to a time before the "BIC pen" exploit was well publicized.

I have a computer cable lock with a similar key.

Thanks, a prior lock sounds the most plausible. I'll stick them in the pile of "just in case" keys.

I have a similar one on a cabinet. Bet if you stopped into a locksmith and asked you would find out plenty of applications.
