no way man. Maybe if you have some crazy candy color or something.
But I'm no painter so I may be wrong. I seem to remember a few people getting their bikes painted in the 3-500 range.
thats more my range there haha im just looking to go all white on my zx6r. i could go cheap an stay black just get the right an front fairings painted but looking for a change

No professional painter in their right mind would accept 750 for a candy paint job, it just wont happen. Ricks Custom Cycle in Garden City MI charges 1200 for a single color paint job. Im about to do a HoK candy(Brandywine, such a beautiful color btw) on a bike and Im already at 600 for materials lmao. Just sayin. Had to get that out of the system...

I got my tank patched.and painted the stock color for 200 so I could definitly c paying over 750 for the whole bike with a nice color

When I wanted just my left and right lowers painted I had my uncle quote me and he owned a body shop
it was going to be 200 and I had to get the paint which was half pint of pearl chrome yellow, the base, and the clear coat around 80 bucks
so 280 for just the lowers not the rest of the bike

On my local forum a dude charges 500 for single color paint jobs and only based on car OEM colors. This is assuming no need for major repair in prep and is the "hook up" price.

For a quality paint job, expect $700+

might as well buy new set of fairing for 4 bills instead of ruining your oem paint job. and spending over 500

Not at all my man, It's a must see color in person. By far one of it not my favorite deep red

Contact information and email for Cycle Finish

for this place, in particular, sportbike paint jobs start at 600 but are usually in the 800-1000 range.
400-600 for race body paint single colors
That sounds legit 1Time, have you ever done business with these guys?

I work in a shop and a basic paint job will run around 750 to 900 bucks depending on what color and how many peices you have. Just painted my buddies 675 black with red and gold flake in it and it cost him about 1500. And by basic I mean it will look better then factory at least where I work
