Harley-Davidson Hard Candy Flake Paint Sets

Harley-Davidson Custom Paint

Twelve sparkling two-tone Hardy Candy Flake Core Series ($2,299.95 to $4,399.95) paint sets join the 2012 Color 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. Hardy Candy Flake is created in a multi-step process that begins by laying several passes of silver microflake over a silver base, which is then topped with clear coat.

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. Also sold individually are Sportster, Dyna and Softail fuel tanks in the Hard Candy Flake color combinations. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for program details.
