Good AND cheap? That's an oxymoron when paint jobs are concerned.

When you find out how much paint work costs, your little scratch will bother you less.

Ya know I just had a thought...
There's a place in California, I think, called Colorite. They sell exact match paint for motorcycles. They also sell touchup pens with moto paint.
If your bike is a stock color, maybe you could order the right color pen and then contact a paint and body place. They could possibly apply the paint and buff it out for a minimal fee.

Here's a link...

Well my brother had a scratch on a new Audi, it was around 50$ to get it fix, it was in Austin tho.
How much does it cost +- for a lil scratch cover?
