What exactly the chrome slab made of? The dealer says metal, but magnets won't stick. Aluminum? Tap it and it sounds like plastic to me. Anyone know?

Howdy Charlie,
Its metal, but very light-weight. Indian took a lot of care to keep things light. almost all of the weight in the Chiefs is in the engine/transmission unit. I'm willing to accept that because the engine is so stoutly built that I anticipate up to 300,000 miles of trouble-free service as quite likely. I think Polaris put the weight where it'd do the most good.
