I called a place today to price painting my "V". Changing the color overall. Mostly out of curiousity. I trust these guys, they have done 4 repair paint jobs for me. Cars though, thanks to my better halfs terrible driving. They also do a lot of high end stuff, so all of the jobs they do have a lifetime warrenty. For bikes, they start at $600 and go up. So given my guesstimation, bike and wheels would be just under $1k. I am not sure if that is high or not. Has anyone ever had a bike painted. Say within the past 2-3 years. Is this high or is it a decent price. I am probably going to work an angle to see if I can get them to cut me some slack being as though I have to take our 2 month old 08 Accord there for an estimate, thanks to the better halfs efforts at trying to rip the front bumper off while backing out of the driveway. What do you guys think? To high?
