this is clay (jen's husband) i have had four of my bikes repainted and two or three of my buddies. crotch rockets and cruisers. I work at holiday chevrolet and the lead painter does some work on the side. panels on or off your choice. it just cost more to have him remove and install. average cost of bike to paint with about 15 parts was 5 to 6 hundred. that was minor repair work such as scuffs or small bondable cracks primed and blocked, based in your choice of color then pearled and finally that beautiful clear coat. any dirt in clear is wet sanded out and and mistakes are redone to correct. any questions give me a call 248-919-6942 ask for Clay. hope i can help!
