Average cost for new paint

I'm seriously considering getting some custom paint on my bike this winter but have no idea of what I should expect for the price. I replaced my bags and side covers with the solid black cvo extended bags and solid black side covers. Those hideous factory stripes have got to go. I'd like to just get the fairing, front fender, lowers, and tank painted with old school hot rod flames. Similar to what you see on 55 & 57 chevys?

If anyone has done paint and can give ball park numbers I'd appreciate it.

I'm picking my new Road glide up today. I don't like any of the colors, so I'm going to have it repainted. I was quoted 1700. for a basic paint job. Which means painted White, with some kind of small Black or Silver stripe to break up the color. This guy paints for a big local bike shop, so I know the work will be top notch.

Type of paint, color or colors, pattern, and painter are factors to consider. On the cheap side you're looking at least a grand. Custom work will be closer to 4k or more.

2011 RGU with more money then sence in it.
Oh and its black because blacks faster.

flame paint

Any thoughts on how this style of paint might look on a shark? I don't have any artistic ability and just can't picture how that paint job would look on my bike. Always impressed by individuals who can look at a car or bike and in their minds design a paint scheme that works with the lines of the vehicle.
