This is the picture Harley-Davidson wishes to evoke with looks at its newest creation, the Seventy-Two.
The Motor Companies new creation was directly influenced by the chopper period, when minimal, low bikes were the coolest things on wheels. And do not forget those diner-vinyl upholstered gel seats.
First thing noticed on the top model is the Hard Sweet Giant Red Flake paint (the bicycle is also offered in Black Denim and Giant Blue Pearl). I tis sparkly affect is created after a long system. First find a black base coat, followed by a polyurethane method that carries hexagon-shaped flakes that are over seven times the diameter of metal flake used in typical production paint. Each flake is coated with a narrow aluminum film and then tinted red. applications of clear coat, combined with hand sanding, generate a smooth finish over the flakes.
