Harvey, Thanks for that.

(I know a guy who's been called a crooked saddle wrench before,, not sure if he deserved it or not?)

I'm sure a few tools in the photo were added by the owner, or he was talked into when he bought the bike. Seems a waste as he never rode the bike, and then stored it so poorly, why would he buy extra wrenchs?

Just wondering.
