Eclair Cameras: Bolex vs. New Motor

dear all,
with talk of single frame shooting, arri ses (arri s plural), and bolex shooting, I wondered about shooting at variable speeds and whether it makes more sense to buy a suped (sooped?) up motor or a bolex to shoot single frame, 12 fps, and 75 fps. A new motor and a good bolex seem to cost about the same. I prefer the way the film looks that I shot on my acl than the result's I had with a Bolex, however, my camera is older and I worry about causing it harm with a tough new motor. I also love bolexs and thought I should have one. I guess a reflex bolex would mean that I have to buy some new lenses but the durability and reliability of the camera means that lenses are about all I would have to buy. Oh venerable group, enlighten me with your opinions.

I like Arri S body with capping shutter and intervelometer or animation
motor with control box.  These are around and not to expensive usually.

Did you finish your single frame conversion with the Slo-Syn SS-50?  My
application would be a little stop frame.  Or would I be better off with
say, a Scoopic or Bolex for some limited stop frame work? thanks. Karl.

I have good exp. using a ACL and a adapted single frames motor. The one
Tobin is making for Bolex can be adapted to a ACL. Runs on 12 volt and have
time lapse control. The ACL camera works without capping shutter.
