paint job question

After i customize my flat black 900 custom i will need to get it painted.one color,no flake,something simple.How much should that cost,and i am assuming I will be taking all the parts to them to paint and put them back on afterwards.I am going to be doing extensive work, so dont want maaco caliber paint job.

Bikeless and hating it.

I recently had a quote of $900, but that was for a 2 color job and to shave the tail light section. However, I decided to do the job myself, and by the time I was done buying paint, and a few specialty tools, supplies and value of my time added in, I was beginning think maybe $900 wasn't so bad. Actually, I truly enjoyed doing the job myself, and I feel like I got a pretty decent paint job out of it, and learned a lot in the process.

I dont want to waste a lot of money trying to do it myself.But it would be fun if i had money to waste on screwups.Glad yours turned out good.I get runs,overspray,underspray,you name it anytime i have tried.

Repainted mine last year. For my cost was around $450 doing it myself. Got 2 quotes for single color at $750, and $1200. But they both did all the polishing also. Had to buy spray gun, paint, clear, and I added pearl to it. Plus primers in spray can, and sanding supplies.
