Newbie paint question

Hey everyone, I'm new to this particular forum and I'm hoping you can help me with a question no one on the other forum I frequent thought was worth explaining. If I had a full-faired sport bike and wanted to get it painted a nice, single color, what sort of price range am I looking at?

I appreciate any feedback you can offer. Have a great day.

250-1000 depending on the paint you use

300 for a solid normal color, the more pearls or metal flake you add will add in the price.

but i'd say 300 is about average for 1 color

I'm also looking to do the same to my bike. the price estimate seems pretty reasonable - are there any recommendations for paint shops that specifically work on bikes? Preferrably on the west side?

Tony at Tom's Paint & Body is THE MAN. Very reasonable, ultra fast turn around, and some great paint work for the price. Tony does all the LMS staff bikes.

If you do it yourself be sure you get flex agent (helps the paint flex on the plastic). I'm sure the seller of the paint will ask but if he doesn't, slap him and say something! Good Luck in your ventures!
