All that I've ever found (that's useful, anyway) have been several tyre levers and a chain tool.

In 2011 I noticed a busted abandoned cheapo mtn bike at the bottom of a dual carriageway embankment. I decided to take the inner tubes off it as I had used up my spare tube because of a puncture.
At the bottom of the embankment I had a look around, there were various traffic cones, wheel trims, drinks cans, rubbish and then an upside down human skull with the lower jaw missing off it !
About 40 feet from the skull was the rest of the skeleton with clothing attached.
I did report it to the Police and had to wait around for about 3 hours until a detective arrived to take a statement. The skeleton was of a guy who disappeared in 2005. No connection to the abandoned bike I believe.
