Some of the best pics I have seen of the bike so far. Could be the colour scheme - it is truly beautiful. I too will soon be on the waitlist for a Corretto.......

Thanks mate! Jared @ Baum is a gun with his ideas for paint! I have ridden my ass off over the last 10 days, so much so I have made myself sick! The bike hasn't missed a beat!

I got a 500km service during the week (I'm doing 70hour weeks at the moment, so 500km in 10 days is a lot!) and rode with Darren Baum and Jared the paint meistro. It was a great opportunity to pick their brains about what their ideas on life and bikes...

I'm so happy with the bike and how it rides!

Friday morning my dad sat down in front of my bike and told me he thought it was so awesome and wanted one too, so on Friday I ordered him one and he's down for an April delivery! Unoriginal bastard :-P

Magnificent!
Unfortunately a mate of mine (who is the king of bad taste and is actually colour blind) has also placed an order for one.
I think he's gone for the lime green scheme.

Hahaha mate, tell him to let Jarrod (the style guru) choose the color for him!

Welcome to the Baum owners club.
Even though the paint does add weight it does look nice.
I've attached a pic of my baby(it has changed slightly since the photo)
Jarod Bailey is a champion.

I know this is an old thread but I just keep coming back to it. This is such a beautiful bike - I'm guessing all that paint isn't cheap but when it looks this good who cares massive congratulations. I need to stay away from the Baum website as there is no way I can afford this right now.
