If you dont like the colour of the pegs, you could try soaking them in caustic soda. Then they will be the alloy colour. My mate just did his stem, and its now the natural alloy silver colour.

what is caustic soda?

Sodium hydroxide. Its a common chemical used in cleaning and manufacturing. Its strong stuff. You get it in powder, flakes or tablets and dissolve in water.

When using caustic soda, make sure you use goggles.  Stuff will burn your eyes out.

Well I can't discolor them cuz they ain't mine. I have my set of fly magnesium pegs in a drawer, I guess I should have also taken a pic with those on. :p

Cuz I put a sh*tload of money in my bike, that's all. After spending money on car mods, upgrading a bike with parts seems so much more affordable and easy.  -_-
BTW, I wasn't happy with a paint job, so I rawed my frame and rerawed my fork.
Upgrades? Gold odi longneck grips.
Oh yeah, for pictures sake, I put my original fly magnesium pegs back on.
