Question Chicago painter recommendations for the topcase?


I'm looking to get the top case painted to match my Blue K1200GT. Anyone have any recommendations for the Chicagoland area? Thanks.

I bought my bike from Cyclewerks but had TagSport arrange to paint the topbox. Call Kent at TS, 630 232-0916. I paid $225 and got a new box - when it was painted I brought in my box and exchanged it. I think Kent uses someone in Barrington. Good luck.

Painter - Chicagoland

I began calling around last winter and was absolutely floored by the prices quoted over the phone - $1500-2000 for the tank and fairing parts for my 85 K100RS was quite common. I finally called Certified Autobody in Lake Bluff - $450 plus the cost of the BMW paint and Jeff did an awesome job. Tremendous pride in his work.
