How much is a custom paint job for a motorcycle?

I have an 09 Fatboy and was wondering what the average price range is for getting the Tank and the front and rear fenders painted? I don’t know exactly what I want yet but if you could give my a low and high end price range that would be great!
I am currently located in Colorado Springs but will be moving to NC in March. I found this awesome U.S. Army paint set but it wont fit my bike. Here is the link for it.

This is something that would be a possibility for my bike.

    NICE BIKE!
    Where are you located? I’m Canadian.
    Depends on what you want how much prep work is required. Also how famous/busy the painter thinks he/she is.
    Save a few $ by re’n’reing the parts yourself.

    Expect between 1500 and 3000 for a one color base/clear coat paint job and depending on what you want more or less. Understand the sky is the limit.
    Insist on a Base/Clearcoat job though your bike deserves no less! I’ve seen 15,000 dollar paint jobs! After building cycles 30 years now I know the paint is the achilies heel in my day.
    I bought a spray gun last year and am learning to do it myself…like everything else it’s hard,expensive, time consuming and FRUSTRATING to find and keep good help!
    I will purchase an air brush next.
    Shops specialize in painting cycles. They have stands to support tanks and fenders. If they don’t use this equipment shop elsewhere. Also a downdraft paint booth is essential.
    Harley also supplies ‘custom paint’ kits for your bike. A few GG’S will get you NEW FLASHY CUSTOM PAINT and you get to keep the stock stuff!
    RIDE ON!

    your gunna find that good paint isn’t cheap and cheap paint isn’t good. make sure that since its on the bike it is a two stage paint single wont hold up to the weather. if your going for solid or 2 Colors maybe a pin stripe low bid around 900 high bid for same around 2500. add some air brush and the sky is the limit.

    I recently got a price of $1,000 for a single color respray on a Roadking. If I brought in the pieces off the bike it would be $200 cheaper. That was at a good local indy cycle shop that does their own line of custom choppers. They do a nice job, so that estimate isn’t for some sloppy and nasty work.

    Like the other answerer said before, the sky is the limit after that.

    It Depends On;
    a. What Yhoo Have Painted On It
    b. Labour Costs. Longer It Takes/More Complicated It Is, The More Money They’ll Charge
    c. Type Of Paint Used
    d. Size Of Area Being Painted
