    I am considering a custom paint job on my bike. Can you guys give me a ball park cost to have a first class paint job done to the fenders and tank? I have no idea what this should cost.
    Thanks

    The other option is to look into Harley's custom paint tins through MOCO. Check out the parts and accessories catalog.

    I think it's a personal preference. I have a custom paint job on my street glide. Some people think I paid "way too much" for it. But, truth be known, I love it. So, it really depends on what you want and how much you want it.

    By the way, I paid $2750.00 for it. way too much ? Not for me. I love it

    It usually starts at about 500.00 for a basic color and goes up from there. I have seen some over 3000.00. It all depends on your taste and how much you are willing to pay for the best. One word of advice make sure you are going to love it when its done!

    From the pictures of your bike it looks like a candy red, which is a pricey paint, with some graphic. The inner fairing was painted also. There is about 13different parts on a street glide. Most don't understand the work that goes into paint anything. Cleaning, preping, sanding, painting, sanding again and polishing just to name a few. Your price seems well within a good price range.
    And like you said you love it. It is something you are proud to ride. And yours is different than the next guys.

    You can go to my web site at Custom Motorcycle Paint By:Brush Signs, Banners & Graphics By:Dave.
