Paint

I'm considering a custom paint job for the bike. Currently it's the stock blue/black and I'm thinking about a metallic bronze primary color on the tank and fenders with black shading on the fenders and black on the tank inset in the same style thats on the bike now. No fancy airbrush work just a color change to something more unique. As this is my first venture into the paint areana so i'm asking for opinions on what should I expect to pay for a good paint job of this nature. I'm guessing several varied responses; however, I just trying to set a baseline before I start searching for estimates...

Anywhere from 500 bucks on up; prolly closer to a grand. Motorcycle paint jobs ain't cheap!

That said, for what you want, you might be able to get it done quite a bit cheaper at a local/area body shop, if you can find one with a good rep. Automotive paint's a helluva lot cheaper than MC paint, and the scheme you want doesn't really classify as "custom"; i.e., fancy.

I know they told one guy I know $1200 for 2-tone and around $500 for single color.That's one reason I did mine myself.
