I have thought about doing this a few times in the past but have not had the right lens. I could have made it with a 135mm (or similar) lens but that would not give the angle of view I wanted and would make for quite a bulky camera.

Attached are a couple of shots to show that a dis-assembled Minolta lens and a couple of CNC cut nylon pieces can become a focusing mount for this lens.
Judging by the lens to film distances for focusing at infinity and one metre, I think the original focusing scale on this lens is going to be fairly accurate. If not, I will print out a new one and stick it over the old scale.
