I’m sure this question has been raised in the distant past. I’m curious. Just how many Bol D’ors, running and registered, remain in Australia and New Zealand? Apart from my own I have not seen another (roadworthy) in well over a decade. I checked the stats at this website- 458 units were imported between April 1985 and May 1986. I own two of them (one on the road, the other is for parts). My local motorcycle wrecker must have the body parts (all cracked and damaged) from at least 4 separate bikes. So that leaves 452 unaccounted for. Keen to hear from owners what remains of this very underrated bike.
I just got the sump off an F2 motor from A wrecker in Canberra for my 85 FF, there’s another F2 owner from ACT on this forum.
Old old post I know, but I’ve got two in Melbourne. Trying to make one excellent bike from the 2 at the moment.
Another guy on the Forum is rebuilding a Bol in Narooma NSW. If you get stuck I can probably help with a spare carb body?
Thanks mate. Will let you know how I get on
I have got my VF1000 FII back in 2002. It was in a shed in Tasmania for 15 years. Sadly, it was by a window, and the right side of the bike had faded. In 2013, I ended up in a hospital off and on for several years. All good now. I have had the bike repainted. I am currently replacing the seal/rubber parts plus the 36,000 Km service and disks/pads. I also am fitting Michelin Road Classic Motorcycle Tyres.
That’s a cracker mate!
Just got the parts to strip down the carbs clean and replace all the seals.
