Harley-Davidson Core Series Paint

Harley Factory Custom Paint

Harley-Davidson has always been driven on offering its customers the utmost in aftermarket accessories for their iconic machines, and lately this trend is going more and more towards all-out custom paint from the factory.

This is evident in the new Harley-Davidson Core Series paint program, which offers H-D owners the opportunity to create their own paint using select designs, colors, and finishes.

Harley says the custom paint series offers 58 possible combinations, utilizing five designs, six custom colors and the choice of a gloss or denim finish; all are painted by professional artists and pinstripers to strict original-equipment standards.

A customer begins the Core Series process by selecting one of five custom designs: Two-Tone, Grind, Flames, Graphics or Touring Flames. All designs start with a black base, and are detailed with Vivid Black, Shiny Side Up Silver, Real Fine Red, Push the Boundaries Pink, Agave Blue or Iconic Orange accents. Each design is available in Denim or Gloss finish.

Harley says the Core Series is available as a complete set, including factory-fresh sheet metal, for many 2010 and 2011 Harley-Davidson Touring, Sportster, Dyna and Softail models, priced from $1,999.95 to $5,299.95.

Color sets are covered by a two-year factory warranty when installed within 60 days of purchase of a new Harley motorcycle.

Designs may also be applied to the customer’s undamaged sheet metal through the Sheet Metal Exchange Program, available for many models up to 10-years old, with no additional strip or prime charges.

Core Series paint is available year-round and in unlimited quantities. Standard lead time is 45 days. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for details.
