Are you ready to take over the drag strip? If you are, then you need to hurry up and set your sights on the 2021 Dodge Challenger Mopar Drag Pak. This new drag monster is the quickest, fastest and most powerful Drak Pak that’s ever been created. Its 354-cubic-inch HEMI V8 that’s based on the same engine that won the 2018 NHRA Factory Stock Showdown (FSS) and NMCA Factory Supercar championships.
Upgrades include the new 3.0-liter Whipple twin-screw supercharger, upgraded forged internals, and more. On top of the new supercharger cover rests a serialized red and chrome Drag Pak badge. Other enhancements include the four-link rear suspension, a Mopar K-member in the front, double-adjustable Drag Pak-specific tuned Bilstein coilover shock absorbers, roll cage built to meet rigorous safety requirements, a race-ready interior and a lot more. Dodge is also offering two different wheel and tire combinations, one with Bogart wheels and Mickey Thompson tires, and another with Weld Racing wheels and Mickey Thompson tires.
Only 50 examples of the 2021 Challenger Mopar Drag Pak will be created, but you can contact Dodge//SRT Concierge by calling (800) 998-1110 to register for the opportunity to order one for yourself.

Rare Motorcycle Sold for Nearly a Quarter Million Dollars
For the past 33 years, Las Vegas has become home to motorcycle’s high rollers, collectors, and enthusiasts who swarm the city for Mecum Auctions’ annual January sale. This year’s event had a reported 2,000 motorcycles up for grabs, from turn-of-the-century machines to modern-day racers. By the time the last motorcycle rolled across the stage of the four-day event, these five rose to the top for highest prices paid. Since there was a tie between fourth and fifth place, we included the sixth-place finisher as well, this 1994 Harley-Davidson VR1000 and its $129,250 selling price worthy of an honorable mention.

1. 1928 Indian Ace | $220,000
Every OEM has a marquee model that exemplifies the company’s very best. While Indian Motorcycle has manufactured heralded Scouts and Chiefs, the elegant Indian Four deserves a spot among the finest machines ever produced by Hendee and Hedstrom.
This restored beauty comes from Wayne Kruty’s private collection. Kruty did a comprehensive restoration in 2014, including having the engine and transmission rebuilt by Davies Antique Motors. The 1,265cc inline four-cylinder engine has overhead inlet valves and side exhaust valves and puts out about 30 hp. This one features a leading-link fork and frame, something only found on the first-year Indian Ace models. Draped in classic red paint highlighted by crisp gold script, the motorcycle exudes power and grace.
One of the motorcycle’s strongest selling points, the beautiful inline-four, is a descendant of the 1911 Henderson. The Henderson brothers, Thomas and William, were well known for the American four-cylinder motorcycle engine they engineered. They sold their company to Schwinn bicycles, who also produced Excelsior motorcycles, in 1917. William Henderson then embarked on a new venture, founding the Ace Motor Company in 1919, which was subsequently purchased by Indian in 1927. Production was moved to Indian’s factory in Springfield, Massachusetts, where it rolled out the first 1927 Indian Ace. The next year it dropped the name Ace but continued to produce inline-four motorcycles. This Indian was the Ace in the hole at Mecum’s 2024 Las Vegas auction, winning the jackpot for highest selling motorcycle at $220,000.

2. 1957 Mondial 250 Bialbero Grand Prix Racer | $165,000
Mondial was a boutique motorcycle manufacturer from Bologna, Italy, that specialized in squeezing the highest performance possible out of motorcycles with relatively small engines. Produced between 1948 and 1979, the brand cut its teeth in Grand Prix racing and won five world championships in its heyday. During that tenure, only approximately seven Mondial 250 Bialbero Grand Prix racers were built by the factory. This survivor is the result of a 10-year labor of love for owner John Goldman, who lovingly restored it to its former glory.
The engine’s history adds to its provenance. The 250cc DOHC single-cylinder engine uses a shaft-and-bevel drive for its cams instead of a tower of gears driving the camshafts. For that reason, it is believed it was raced by Tarquinio Provini in 1957, giving it a GP pedigree.

The beautiful dustbin fairing adds to its allure as well. The aluminum was hand-fabricated by Giancarlo Morbidelli, the famed

Cult classic: A Harley XR1200 street tracker from Taiwan
There must be something in the water, because this is the second Harley XR1200 street tracker that’s popped up on our radar in as many weeks. We’re not complaining though. Even though it wasn’t a big sales hit, we’re fans of Harley-Davidson’s sportiest Sportster—mainly because it was such a hoot to ride.
It’s hard to pinpoint exactly why the Harley XR1200 didn’t stick around longer, but we have our theories. One is that the market simply wasn’t ready to accept a Harley that actually handled well. The other is that the styling was a mish-mash of too many influences.
The Motor Co. pitched the XR1200 as a flat tracker for the street—and gave it an XR750-inspired livery and upright seating position to match. But the XR’s tail section and goofy split-spoke wheels felt like 90s sportbike throwbacks. Still, it was nothing if not bold, and its awkwardness was arguably part of its charm.
This custom Harley XR1200 comes from Fever—a custom workshop based in Taoyuan City, just outside of Taipei in Taiwan. Their take on this cult classic is refreshing because it pushes the styling in one clear direction instead of trying to ride the line between multiple genres.

The Mighty Six: A brutal custom Honda CBX from The Netherlands
An email commissioning a new project is good news for any custom motorcycle workshop. But the crew at Moto Adonis in The Netherlands was particularly giddy when their latest project hit their inbox. The brief read like most others, save for one key detail—the client specifically requested a custom Honda CBX 1000.
Like many of us, Moto Adonis co-owners Arthur Renkema and Job Leussink idolize the mighty CBX. “It’s undoubtedly one of the most legendary machines ever built,” Job proclaims. “The sound of this beastly inline six-cylinder engine, skillfully crafted by Honda masters, is more than just noise; it’s a symphony of brute force that resonates as pure rebellion on two wheels.”
Despite their love for this 80s icon, Moto Adonis had no intention of simply creating a tidy Honda CBX 1000 restomod. “The bike was craving a contemporary, rugged touch,” explains Job. “And we didn’t just add a hint; no, we went all-out.”
Paying tribute to the CBX’s legacy, Arthur and Job kept the bike’s OEM fuel tank—but everything else was fair game. The guys set out to modernize the bike, while stripping back as much as they could to highlight its gargantuan engine. While we wouldn’t go as far as calling a six-cylinder superbike from the 80s ‘lithe,’ this CBX is one of the leanest we’ve seen.
