tools in old tool box

In 1957 I bought a 49' Hydra Glide...I still kept two old wrenches from that tool box...these wrenches fit some of the nuts and bolts on the 50' Pan I am presently working on...I was wondering if anybody has pictures or a list of the tools that were in those old tool boxes...just curious...I'm still trying to my 50' Pan started...

I'm laughing my ass off at the question...I was born in 1935..Brooklyn, NY...I think it was Franklin Roosevelt...I am 83 but don't realize it unless I'm looking in the mirror shaving....I am reliving a time when I rode 1955-1961...learned on a 38' knuckle then got the 49' Glide... after 4 years in the Navy...made trips from NY to Key West Fl...I am enjoying the hell out of trying to get the 50' started...and enjoy the discussions on this site...thanks by the way for the picture of the tools...
