It's one of those English motorcycles with the shifter and rear brake pedals on the wrong sides of the bike.

Nice picks.
The socket set is Indestro made for Western Auto me thinks..
The S-Adjustable, if you look closely the fixed jaw is smooth while the face of movable jaw is angled and has teeth. They are generally considered to be for pipe work as far as I know.

Yep pipe wrench version.

What a steal! Great buys!

  Thanks all obviously a poor repop. Thankfully didn't buy it as real. Not a bike guy and learned something. The one on ebay has same flaw. Probably made large quantity.

Other than the little typo, it's a pretty appealing repro sign. I can see why you picked it up.

The base is probably filled with sand? With a vise that size cantilevered to that extent the base has to be really heavy. 300 lbs?

I bet there is closer to 500 lbs of steel in the base.  And if filled with sand, which would be a good idea to dampening the "ringing" from the hollow drum, add another 350 lbs for the sand. 

My guess anyways.

Good to know.  I have no personal reference weight wise.

Hello,
Have a look at this Bahco 57. So its a Generation 2 which is highly desirable and rare and its the biggest (30 inch) so it would have to be just about the most desirable collector wrench in Bahco ever. First one I've seen in >5 years of looking on Tradera. What did it sell for? Not nearly enough. Because the owner listed it as Swedish buyers only and refused to change the ad to allow international bidders despite numerous requests, he achieved probably half of its value in the auction. The lucky Swedish buyer got a true bargain. I have encountered this many times - the best source for Vintage Bahco is undoubtedly Tradera - a Swedish EBay - and many sellers in Sweden are reluctant to post overseas. :rolleyes:
