There are definitely motors for the H16. I was curious enough to look to see if any were still around, there's one on eBay right now for 40 bucks.

I'm not sure if there were ever any crystal motors for the H16... which probably isn't an issue since that camera was so loud. They aren't anything that require any conversion or installation, you simply attach them.

You might check the CommieCam users group which I used to be very active in (but not really any more) at It's mostly people who use the wonderful cold-war era Russian 16mm and 35mm Konvas and Kinor cameras (like I used to) and the fantastic Russian LOMO and Foton lenses, but there are Bolex owners there as well (again, like I used to be).
