Well, I had 3 quotes in the $5K ballpark for mine, then I found a guy who agreed on $3200. I never thought I would spend that kind of Jack on a paint job, but I just said WTF, and went for it. Then with powdercoating most of the chrome to black and getting the PM Luxe 21" front wheel, I sprang for $5 grand anyway. It didn't make the bike run any better or make it more comfortable, but it DAMN sure looks great! I get compliments almost every day. I figured I can't spend it from the grave, so I might as well get what I want while I'm still kicking. F the nursing home!
