You do know that the frame is covered by the rear fender, yes? I have my TMod covered with some black brushed on primer. You would have to remove the rear fender to see it.

The stripes are custom hand laid by a local painter here on LI. Im not a fan of stick on stripes.

i know, but i just worry about moister rusting it out. plus i don't know what tail light setup i would run. i would hate to have to cut on the fender (to use the stock tail light set up) with no way to repaint it where it was cut. but stock, it looks like a 4x4 truck in the rear.

You'll be fine if you do the T-Mod and paint it with some paint, there has not been anyone that's said that they have had any rusting issues, myself included, and another thing is that the cuts are not exposed, you cut the frame, push it down and reweld it and then spray paint it.

KIOWA is absolutely right, and i thought it was a given. The weld seals off the inner exposed frame tube. And unless you constantly ride in wet weather the T-Mod isnt going to be exposed to water all the time anyway.

Just keep in mind, the more you cut out, the more the rear is going to drop. I have posted it before where i took just over 1/4" out and dropped the rear almost 3 inches. And the possibilities for tails are endless. There are those here who have done a minimal drop and still use the stock tail light assembly. Fabbing one up on your own isnt that big of a deal either.

The Kosman mod doesn't look nearly worth the cost of it. The Sumo T-Mod appears to be the way to go.

Depends what you're looking for. My quote from Sumo was $5k. I can't justify that for a while. I'm going to try the Kosman. And if I can modify a rear fender like Boop did, then it may be worth it.
