It's chromed plastic but with the right prep it's very paintable. Here's mine:

Re: Harley Davidson Grille Paintable?

I bought the Chi-com one from RockAuto, took out the center portion and sandblasted the chrome off of it, don't keep the blaster in one place too long. Sprayed it with Bulldog Adhesion Promoter then painted flat black. Had the surround part sprayed with Linex. When taking the grill apart I broke about half of the clips holding the 2 pieces together, had to use a hot glue gun to keep it from rattling when I put it back together. Heres the result.
