Oddly enough, I have a TDM rear hugger for sale in the For Sale thread.
Better to be over the hill than under it.

True, I didn't see that you were Brit. TDM huggers should be readily available on the European ebay sites.

That looks good Greeny. Did the left side holes line up without mods? I know you had to fab a tab for the right side.

As a guy with a pretty basic toolkit, do you have a clearer definition of "minimal work"? :) Any welding and such required?
