His website has a catalog of his works and I didn't see the BN1 painting 
in there.  I assumed the forger copied one of his works but maybe he 
created an 'original.'  At least the forger had good taste in subjects.

Hockney is apparently an honest-to-goodness gearhead; I found some 
submissions (apparently) by him on the Piston Heads forum.

What appears to be an abstract painting of a BN1!  Thanks to the miracle of DVR technology--and a new, state-of-the art cable box--I'm able to rewind the show and get an iPhone photo of the art and what I believe to be the artist's signature.
