To get you a rough idea... since I would like to see it all first.
With it all disassembled, $50.

Swingarm... what kind of bike and year? Average is $75-$100.

I need about a week to get a new job started. Taking care of a set of wheels and also a pair of car valve covers at the moment.

You would need to have the tires removed also. Those are spoke wheels, correct? Are you wanting me to just coat them all together, spokes and all?

Sprocket cover and water pump cover, roughly $10-$20 a piece depending on condition and powder price. I would like to get a junk KTM part to send off and get color matched one of these days.

Unless I am wrong the wheels should be with the bearings removed, & same with the s/arm with no bushings. We had one chap demanding us to send his wheels off to be CHROMED & once back we had to use a dramel tool so we coudl get the brgs in. He told us, later on, that this was a BAD MISTAKE for he was forced to carry a cloth so he could keep the wheels clean. Obviously Powder Coating would have been better.

Also he scratched the idea of the swing arm to be chromed a bit later on!!!!!!!!!!!!

Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.

All local stuff. Might have to do a couple days here and there, but not likely.

Stayin' home.

Yes, bearings/bushings should be removed also from all parts. Some people say this isnt true, but for the cost of new bearings, it just doesnt make sense to me at all to take the chance. Wheels I will not do with bearings in them. I always mask all bearing/machined surfaces.
