I bought this bike as a non running rusty mess and after refurbishing it mechanically went to paint shops to get estimate of cost for 6 pieces. I was shocked as the estimates were $1500. to $2500. I decided to do it myself and went with the duplicolor paint system black then added metallic clear coat and finally regular clear coat. The black became more of a greyish blue look when the metallic was added but looks awsome and very professional after being wet sanded and polished.
