|Ian Cater's painting of a Royal Enfield Constellation.|
He believes he owns the motorcycle shown in the painting!
Cater had told me he based his painting on a photo he'd seen of "a guy belting a Constellation along... I just tried to give it as much impression of movement and speed as I could."
Audor not only has the motorcycle, he also got hold of photos of it as it looked in a magazine story. He emailed them to me, writing:
|Royal Enfield Constellation|
on 1998 CBG cover.
"This Connie was dispatched in May, 1960 to Walton & Coombes of Altrincham and it still has matching engine and frame. Registration shows 1964 which is mysterious..."
Audor would like to know more about his Constellation. Its registration number back in the day was LKE274B .
"In case someone can help tracking the bike's history I would be delighted!" You can write him at email@example.com

I wrote to both men at addresses I found online, hoping to ask for more information about the photo shoot that day and the motorcycle, but there has been no reply.
