The 1972 Paramount catalog says "TOOLS: Included with both the Paramount models is a tool kit containing Campagnolo tools for disassembling and adjusting the crank set, for adjusting the saddle and seat post, and for adjusting the derailleurs."

This and my febrile memory suggest that the kit include 5 mm allen key with blister on shaft 6 mm T wrench crooked saddle wrench crank puller peanut butter wrench. I'm just not sure about the crank bolt spanner.

I'm pretty sure it did NOT include chain tool or the extra allen keys with your set, but you can be generous. But, your picture doesn't show the saddle wrench, which is an essential component of the frustration of that seatpost. :-)

The brown plastic pouch sounds like the real McCoy; someone on the list was selling some a while back.

I'm wondering if folks on the CR list know if this was the full kit, or were there other goodies in there.

Also, I meant to offer to exchange the non-stamped double crank arms on the bike for the triple arms I removed. (I didn't have the 36 ring or the adapters, so I exchanged same time line double for the triple.)
