BFG was founded in 1978 by Louis Boccardo, Favario Dominique and Thierry Grange. The company derives its name from their initials Boccardo, Favario and Grange. The three created a concept for a bike in late 1977. Strangely, this bike was to feature a car engine. Three years later, they built their first motorcycle which attracted a lot of attention from the police department. They purchased hundreds of these motorcycles.
From the start, the idea of building a motorcycle with a car engine was considered to be ahead of its time and the three founders were eager to begin production on their GS Citroen engine-powered bike. They were to produce 450 units of the bike. The evolutionary motorcycle was a G13/646 type with a 1299 engine that featured four horizontally opposed air-cooled cylinders. These were capable of developing a power of up to 70bhp at 5500 rpm with a torque of 100 Nm at 3250 rpm. The bike could roar up to 190 km/h at its fastest. This bike was considered of such great importance especially with regard to the advancement of French technology, that President Francois Mitterrand of France gave Juan Carlos, the King of Spain one as a gift in 1982.
Seven years later, after the amazing concept had been designed and hundreds of motorcycles had been manufactured, financial problems set in. Ultimately, some of these problems had to do with aesthetics as some customers pointed out. However, the design of the motorcycle was dictated by the need to penetrate the wind tunnel in order to perm and handle well. Nevertheless, BFG was purchased by another manufacturer, MBK, and they built more than 150 motorcycles.
More financial problems showed up in 1988 and production came to a stop. However, Boccardo was not ready to give up yet. He created another motorcycle which was named MF and was powered by the engine of a Citroen LN. Unfortunately, this one did not do well either. Boccardo kept hope alive however because he hoped to manufacture a Diesel Motorcycle. He designed a frame and put it in the diesel Peugeot engine from the AX Citroen. The prototype was given the number ‘0’.
