So I'm mulling over repainting my bike, but I really have no idea how to go about this. There would be four pieces involved: tank, rear cowl, windscreen, front fender. Anyone have a ballpark estimate of what a nifty custom paintjob would cost and where I could get it done?

Maybe around 1500 but your bike will be down for quite some time. Russ is very busy, he's that good!

Yeah, I figured it would take awhile so I was thinking about it being a winter project kind of thing.

1500?

that sounds high. from what people are telling me from russ. if you just want a nice color and no fancy designs? that'll be cheaper. plus you have no fairings.

are you thinking custom designs? airbrushed jesus and naked girl ? are you going to change the frame?

I wasn't thinking of getting any fancy graphics. A nice deep dark cherry red (very dark, almost black) pearl effect is what I was thinking. The only graphics would be painting Ducati on the side.

ooo i think i know just the paint scheme you speak of. i worked for a guy that did something similar to his audi. black base with a black cherry pearl top coat. when the sun hit it right it was black cherry pearl, in the shade it was black. that would look sexy on the monster:cool2:
