Metal flake, an iconic design element of the ’70s, is back in the 2012 Harley-Davidson Color Shop offering. Twelve sparkling two-tone Hardy Candy Flake Core Series with full paint sets ranging in price from 2,299.95 to $4,399.95.
The scallop pattern is hand-laid and masked, and color is next applied 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 Core Series Hardy Candy Flake 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 paint is available as a complete set including factory-fresh sheet metal, or as a “paint only” option, applied to undamaged sheet metal removed from a motorcycle. Core Series Color Sets are covered by a two-year factory warranty. The Hard Candy Flake complete paint sets and are available to fit many Sportster®, Dyna®, Softail® and Touring model motorcycles.
