I think that mother Honda as well as others should have paint shops as do the auto dealers. The big motorcycle repair training facilities don't even teach body repair. There is always going to be a need for this as we may want to restore or even have a minor or major accident. Here in Vancouver I have found 4 or 5 shops that will paint but are very expensive as they are custom bike builders and the auto body shops want the body parts removed by customer before they will paint.

Blue is not the fastest color, but it is the prettiest.

It might be because the painted parts get ordered by the dealer, already painted from MH.

I restored an 83 two-tone dark gray 1100 Aspencade and talked the guy at Maaco into doing it. I ordered the pinstripe from Stripeman.com and did that myself. It came out perfect and had $300 in it. My 87 1200 is due out of the paint shop this week, same guy doing it for $250. I took everything appart and took all the pieces there but was worth it to me. I think Maaco is in Canada so might be worth a try.

Yes we have Maaco here and they also want the body parts removed prior to paint. This is my whole point in this post. To find some whith the knowledge of our bikes to be able to remove the body, paint & reinstall. Where I live, we are not allowed to do any work on our vehicles and besides I have not access to a garage or shed or any cover at all.

Too bad you don't have a place to work on it. I think you would be hard-pressed to get a bike shop to disassemble let alone paint it. I agree there should be this service available. You may just have to keep checking till you find somebody. I used this as an opportunity to change timing belts, hoses, all fluids, grease rear spline, etc. Too bad your'e not close, I'd do it for you. Paul

I made a reply to this thread, and lost it....So here is the shorter version....If any of you guys have several hundred thousands of dollars laying around ...Sent it to me and I'll open up a Gold Wing only paint and body shop....

Here is one of the main reasons that Honda dealers won't open up paint shops...If they do then there are at least 4 agency's that get involved into the planing, building, and constant monitoring of all body shops..You have the City, who will look at your plans and if you are not too close to this or that and check the the zoning laws, that says its ok to build one.... Then you meet with the next one...The County and they review what the city said and they in turn hand you over to the State Who gives your request to ......Guess who????? OSHA....Now big brother says yes or no, and they watch you every step of the way from bare ground to finished shop....Everything best be up to codes or no matter how much you spent...You ain't gonna open up.....
This is why a lot of the independent paint shops have closed....We had a Mayco shop here for years.....The Hospital 5 blocks down the road complained about the paint odors in the air....Now that location is a Mexican business strip center....

So if you got the money, I got the time to fight the big 4, if not get Rudy's address and send your wing parts to the guy that painted Rudy's wing...He does GREAT work, as to how much he charges I have no idea....

Yep,cheaper and more profit to make parts and sale them.
Most people want a show room paint job for couple hundred bucks and that dont cover the paint,There are plenty of guys out there that do the work,just may have to search a bit.

We are all blessed every day....Just take time to connect the dots.
