Probably a bit far away and shipping costs would be horrendous, but......viewtopic.php?f=11&t=19092

......and it would look exactly the same as the 'proper' towbar which is basically two pieces of angle iron in a T-shape

I have built several towbars for Triumphs. Usual starting place is a likely-looking donor towbar from bootsale etc, bought for a couple of quid. Provides all the bits you need, and often only a very small bit of adaptation. Just an idea.....

The ones that tuck up neatly hidden behind the bumper are a bit more complicated than that in the main section. The T under the boot is just a flat bar with two small bends.
