Prologo Baum Ristretto

 Declan's Baum Ristretto has seen a couple of paint schemes inspired by the design sensibilities of Sir Paul Smith. Some might say it's a bit overboard but we certainly had a lot of fun with both the saddle and the two piece saddle bag. The bar tape in white leather has perforation colours to match the saddle. The saddle in the last photo is after a few years riding the previous iteration of the Ristretto.
