yeah but you can just use spraypaint, but make sure you use it from a distance, otherwise it will drip

an airbrush would take forever to paint a frame, let alone a bike with. you might mean a paintgun, not an airbrush. airbrushes are those tiny little paintguns that people to flames and other shit with. for a paintgun you need an aircompressor with atleast 115 psi output. the guns usualy cost about $150 to buy and the paint for them is usualy $30 a half gallon. spray paint will work if you want a shitty job that will flake off over time. the best bet would to just take it to a motorcyle shop or some other place that painst professionaly and have them do that. that is what i'm going to be doing when i have my frame painted pink. yea, thats right, [COLOR=Magenta]PINK[/COLOR].

it usualy depends on the place. i can give a plosible estimation though. somewhere between $30-$50 depeneding on the amount of parts painted and then the price of the labor and taxes that would be added. so somewhere between $60-$100. maybe more, maybe less.

and plus anyways, its just paint. i know some people care about it but its just going to be ground, scraped, and chipped off in a short while. 3 days after i got my new frame there is barealy any paint left in the chainstays, seatstays, and bottom of the downtube.
