It looks to me like”black chrome”, but Harley-Davidson claims that it’s not, that it’s not a chrome process and that they are the first to offer this treatment in the motorcycle industry. I will have to check from close on the Harley display on Lazelle Street in Sturgis.
Harley states that Black Ice is the product of a proprietary treatment that combines depth with a highly reflective surface. It’s a look that complements both chrome and black accessories, and many colors.
This new surface finish has been introduced on three custom wheel sets. Roulette custom wheels (P/N 43300116 17-inch front, P/N 40900113 16-inch rear; $549.95 each) and Agitator custom wheels (P/N 43300115 19-inch front, P/N 40900112 18-inch rear; $749.95 each), both for select 2009-later Touring models. Black Ice is also offered on V-Rod 5-Spoke wheels (P/N 55083-11 19-inch front, 55082-11 18-inch rear; $649.95 each) for the 2009-later V-Rod Muscle® and 2012 Night Rod® Special.
