What headset will you use?
I have read some interesting threads about installing 1 1/8" threadless forks on 1" threaded equipped bikes. Some used mixed headsets, some milled out the threads on a 1" steel headset till it fit a 1 1/8 steerer (wow) and used the threadless star-nut and cap system.
RST is the only co. I know of that makes new 1" threaded suspension forks that aren't total trash. They work but are not fancy at all, no damping etc, just springs and grease or oil.
