Those forks are my favs, looks like an awesome build. I can recommend Xlites ti handle bars, had mine for fifteen odd years and still going strong. Had an xlite post too which was pretty awesome. Recommend the stubbie pro bar ends :)

Weren't X-lite bars bulged to 25.4 meaning that they won't work with these forks which use a straight gauge 22.2mm bar along their entirety?
