Restored Two-Passenger Antique Portland Cutter. The
wood runners are very solid and the body side panels and dash, along with
the back, have new double sheets of bendable birch. The sleigh was
restored with the same material and craftsmanship as it was when it was
new (no fiberglass).

This is the ultimate in Albany Sleighs. It has the
tight bend in the top of the dash. The original dash was broken and
this is a new one made in the traditional manner as the original including
eagle heads and rein rail.
The wood part of the runners was replaced with new steam
bent ones. This sleigh is over 100 years old; thus, the deteriorated

This bobsleigh has great potential. It is unrestored
and very restorable. The running gear is of a unique design.
Along with the body, the gear needs some attention, too. All of the
iron and wood parts are in place which greatly enhances a restoration

of a pair of horses. I find no obvious dry rot. A cosmetic
reconditioning will make this a unique and beautiful sleigh.
