So I hate the Phantom having black forks, I was gutted they changed to black so I bought some gold forks and swapped them!

Did you just swap the upper tubes? If so, will you sell the black ones?

The thing I find is that the gold tends to look more like brass with time.
But I do prefer it to black.

I think the gold touch adds some bling to the black. Well done! Very cool! 👍

The new bars and forks look great, OP. I just bought a set of Driven SBK Euro bars, but haven't installed them yet. They should be lower and with less sweep then the OEM bars. Did you drill the new bars for the switch pegs or did you remove the pegs? I see guys doing it both ways without issue, although I'd prefer to keep the alignment pegs.

I cut and filed down the pegs rather than drill my brand new handle bars 🤣 if I got the hole wrong or wanted to change the angle later I’d of been stuck, I’ve had no issue and they clamp up tightly 👍🏻

That seems to be a common way for many who swap bars. Lol. Appreciate the reply.
