Can't remember the post or who it was, but someone hee recently had thiers done in ghost flames in blue and he said if i recall he paid $2000. But it's going to vary from painter to painter. Chances are you're looking at a minimum of probably $1500 i would say, maybe down to a grand for one solid color. Black has got to be horrific to maintain with this paint. But while lacquer will be better, if you've owned black before you know even thats gonna be problematic as far as swirl marks go. I'd stay away from black. I don't mind keeping mine clean, but even my blue one is a pain to maintain the paint on unless i'm willing to live with the paint in a condition that doesn't live up to the rest of the bike's greatness.
