does anyone know if a ground glass was made for it ?
i have searched some of the specialty sites and since i don't know the code names or numbers
i can't figure it out. if i have to, i'll adapt a different maker's gg, my toyo and rollei are too big ...
as a last resort i have had people wheel me around on a dolly
but going over curbs is a real PITA
If you're used to view everything upside down and backwards I assume that you mostly use a view camera. I assume you're used to composing, focusing on the ground glass before loading the film and make an exposure. In such case simply remove the Leica's back put a ground glass at the film plane and lock the shutter open. After you're done you can load the film and make an exposure. That way you can frame your shot a lot more accurate than you can with the Leica viewfinder.

PS: Well I don't know if you could mount the Leica on tripod without the back or how to load film without removing it from the tripod.
