Horse-drawn Carriage Wheels

 

"I repair or manufacture all kinds of horse-drawn carriage wheels and I also remake complete carriages (hippomobiles)"

 

People who call me are passionate about tradition and sometimes want to revive a family heritage.

If the vehicle is too damaged to be repaired, I rebuild from either the original model or from plans resourced from my documentation and I also draw my plans to adapt the car to customer needs.

 

I always try to keep as many of the original parts as possible. I believe in conservation whenever possible. I remain faithful to the wood used in the past, especially for the wheels.

It is possible to restore the wooden wheels, replacing areas of rim and spokes. I can also replace or upgrade some profiles of rubber tires.
