Is the last one part of a restraining device for rogue mothers in law?

Assuming they`re Capri, black is the flasher, red is the intermittent wipe. The metallic looking one is the right size for HRS (but mine`s plastic) . Blue? Something from a 2.8? Or headlamp washers? The last IS an instrument of torture/chastity

All very good yes the blue one I am not sure about and the black bracket I have not got a clue myself .
Perhaps the bracket was for the mother in law ?

Relays are easy, they're called black relay, gold relay, the red twins relays and the big blue relay....

Big metal thing is obviously part of a barbeque ;)

Not that I've ever been on a bicycle in my life but to me the black contraption looks like some sort of DIY bike rack. On the right of it there looks to be two drilled holes that look about the same size/distance apart as the bolts for a towbar eye. I wondered if it bolted through towbar ball mounted holes and the other side with the nut and bolt clamped down on a bike wheel to keep it in place. ???????? Just a thought.
