Harley-Davidson Motor Company Announces The Newest Parts & Accessories
Concord, Ontario (February 15, 2012) - Hard Candy Paint Sets, Comfort Flex Shocks, and A New Metal Flake Solo Seat
NEW HARD CANDY FLAKE PAINT SETS FROM HARLEY-DAVIDSON MOTOR COMPANY
A Sparkling Old-School Metal-Flake Finish in 12 Colour Combinations
Twelve sparkling two-tone Hard Candy Flake Core Series
paint sets join the 2012 Colour Shop offering from Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories. Metal flake, an iconic design element of the ’70s, is back in this new premium custom finish. Hard Candy Flake is created in a multi-step process that begins by laying several passes of silver microflake over a silver base that is then topped with clear coat. The scallop pattern is hand-laid and masked. Colour is applied next in a candy coat that allows the flake to show through. The design is then clear-coated, hand-striped, and clear-coated again to give it the final smooth, deep finish.
The Hard Candy Flake Core Series paint sets are available in Red Flake, Green Flake, Pink Flake, Lime Gold Flake, Orange Flake, and Black Flake with a Silver Flake accent; and in Red Flake, Green Flake, Pink Flake, Lime Gold Flake, Orange Flake, and Silver Flake with a Black Flake accent. Core Series Colour Sets are covered by a Two-Year Factory Warranty. The Hard Candy Flake complete paint sets are available to fit many Sportster® , Dyna® , Softail® , and Touring model motorcycles. Also sold individually are Sportster® , Dyna® , and Softail® fuel tanks in the Hard Candy Flake colour combinations. See an authorized Harley-Davidson® Retailer for program details.
