Redax Laverda
« on: May 10, 2011, 15:04 »
Well, I'll jump in with a recommendation for REDAX - Red and Max in Queensland, AUS.
Red has done 3 heads, a complete 75 3c engine (made up of several boxes of lots of pieces) and pulled own and rebuilt our 120 Sprint engine, rebuilding it with a BIG bore.
Great service and a master in action.
Max handles spares and getting parts out in a very accomplished manner and is a pleasure to deal with - as well as being much, much better on the eye than Red.
They stand by what they supply, and I'm stoked  :D :D :D

I'll second your motion David,

Red has all the gear to bring your beloved Laverda back to life, either standard or with a collection of very sensible, performance enhancing upgrades, such as ignitions and alternators, brake conversions, Mikuni flat-slide carbs and bling in the form of cnc angled inlet manifolds and very impressive looking exhaust manifold flanges.



Redax carries a full range of spare parts that Max can get out to you pretty damn quick if your in a bind.

Red is one of the few people who truely knows what he's doing when it comes to Laverda crankshafts and can provide more cubes for your 1000cc to turn it into a torque inspired engine with race spec pistons from Ross Racing Pistons.



Red is one of those guys that won't leave you stranded, i've seen the amount of work he can churn out in a short time frame to please desperate customers who need him to squeeze one more job in. Passionate about Laverda's and stands behind his products and work.

Cheers Crispin

Red supplied my ignition system (series 1 Jota) with the improved charging system..fitted by Keith  who I think now supplies these in theUK...but a great piece of kit. Took me years to build up to forking out, but wish had done it earlier.The rev limiter has saved the day a few times already.

Sheesh, Secret Squirrel.  :o

Was trying to work out how long to drive up there from Sydney. 900km at 204kmh is only about 4.5 hrs.

Im sure my bike will end up there one day for a rebuild or two.

If anyone wants anything delivered from Red's to any place south. I'll be driving down the eastern side of Australia (to Tas) after the CLQ Concourse (17 July)

Be careful Cam,my first drive up I ended up with I think 4 motors in the car.Its suprising how much room they needed,and the last trip back with my motor I ended up with a jewel like crank with Carelos and a set of Suzuki wheels adapted to fit a Laverda.I was a good boy and didnt keep the lot,I was tempted.Some sexy bits come out of Reds

Well if it's a 'fucking van' then it really only needs to be big enough for a mattress....
