Strong dynamics models may provide a solution to the hierarchy problem of electroweak symmetry breaking. In such models, it is possible that fermion masses arise via mixing with composite fermions of the strong sector. If this is the case, it is plausible that the strong sector will also contain light bosonic coloured resonances that act as leptoquarks. These would couple primarily to the third generation of fermions and would be dominantly pair-produced at the LHC . We propose mass reconstruction strategies using kinematic variables for all the possible decay modes and investigate these against backgrounds including QCD effects, combinatorics and fast detector simulation.
