I want to blank these holes as they look horrible,
Anyone know if there are some bolts made for the job?
Wouldn't mind some anodised ones either.

Well, I painted the frame when it was still on v-brakes.
That's why the inside is still blue.
Was like that for at least a year before going discs.

KCNC makes brake boss plugs. I think the ano red ones could suit that frame's colour quite nicely.

Thanks,
Trying to search for them but not sure what they are called.... frame blanks, fork blanks... blanking bolts.
Need some for the Rock Shox too.
Currently using galvanised bolts on the shocks.
