Subject: [CR]Bianchi Celeste Leather Restoration

I have some Bianchi leather covered bars and saddle in the typical celeste color. Both have some very superficial surface areas, the largest measuring about 1 x 4 cm, where the color has been completely lost, probably by rubbing. The underlying leather is intact, however. I would like some restoration advice. What is the best way to repair this type of damage? Can the areas be recolored? Perhaps this type of thing best left to a professional leather restorer? Any advice would be appreciated by, George
