Default Fitting a springer fork to a short head tube?

I have a Schwinn style springer and want to fit it to a bike with a short head tube. I know there are short steering tubes available, or I can shorten the one I have. The problem I foresee is the angle of the bend in the ring (spring head assembly) seems to bind, if it is pushed down the steering tube. How is this problem overcome?
