What kind of bike? Some have only tank and fenders, some have tank, fenders, side covers, headlight mounts, headlight housing, etc. I have charged as little as $300.00 plus materials up to $2500.00 plus materials for custom paint.

My prices start at $800.00 for a tank and two fenders,that includes color sanding and polishing. There is more work in painting motorcycle parts than people think.

And there is more work in candy paint than BC/CC. A lot of people frown at what they have to pay to have a bike or car painted. They think if Maaco can do it for $295.00, then everyone should be able to do it for that. But they don't realize the cost of materials is really high anymore for quality materials. And paint prices change just the same as gas prices change. The price will fluctuate up and down dollars at a time.
