What tools?

Hey guys. I'm in the middle of buying some new tools. All my other bikes have been metric, so my tool collection is more biased towards those.

I have an A/F socket and spanner set, but when I started my strip down, I've noticed they don't cover everything. I've checked my manuals, and unfortunately they don't say "to do this job you'll need these tool"!

So what else do I need, Whitworth? Bike is a 1971 OIF T120R.

Cheers in advance,

Your '71 OIF has lots of standard American sizes on it.
I own and use British Standard stuff, Metric, and American all the time. I like bikes from all the different countries so need what fits.
