    Here is a good read about the Hunwick Hallam.
    There's also a pile of links at the end of the article.

    Paul showed me the X1R superbike that he had . An amazing piece of engineering .
    A quick video below of him rinding it at the Geelong speed trials a few years back.

    As everyone else has said , this is very Sad News ... he made HD-TV for me ... extremely Cool guy ... met him down at Harley Days , was very Happy to get some pics taken and had the uncanny knack of sounding very genuine when asking about my ride when he didn`t know me at all .


    A very big hole in Australia`s Motorcylce Industry ... R.I.P.

    Sad news and too young to pass. He made the hdtv show for me too and seemed liked a very genuine person; obviously very clever and talented too.

    Thanks for posting this speedzter, it's a very interesting read. I have some very vague recollection of this from back in the day but wouldn't have ever made the connection to one of the ratbags from HDTV.

    I only see the show occasionally but he comes across like your typical knock about Aussie bloke who was happy to goof off, take the piss and entertain but also be serious if needed. It just goes to confirm you never, ever underestimate anyone, beneath that character was a very, very clever man, RIP.
