Default Monarch Repoduction fork durability and longivity?

looking to do a custom srpung front end on my next cruiser build. Tho pricey, i was eyeballing the Monarch repo forks. I have a custom disc wheel for the front end, and ChoppersUS sells disc brake adapters for these forks, Perfect

just wondering if any y'all been riding these forks and how well they hold up with added weight and road use. im not a heavy rider, but still want the absorber to work properly.
ive also read of these forks being not so well made..
read a post of a regular ridin Felt with this front end and it folded up!! :O

another consideration which would be easiest is the Springer forks from Sunlite.
built in brake bosses, and comes in 1 1/8, but i want full disc if i can!!

if there is anything to consider and look out for on the Monarch forks, any advice would be much appreciated.
