I looked into this about 6 months ago, if you ask how much they'll say anywhere from 500-god knows, upwards of 1,000.
but if you walk in or call and ask, "can you do this for 200?" they'll say yes...shop around, and look for a motorcycle shop that paints, not an auto body shop.
I put an ad on craigslist asking for someone to recommend a local painter and I got about 20 responses immediately, a few for the same place and I called them and they said 200 bucks was cool.
