i put a 1 1/8" tube fork in a 1962 frame and it did not bind did not need to remove anything. i guess it just depends on what parts you have.
yes i see your point on grind on steering parts could end bad.
if you did have a small bind some just lightly sand the steem and bearing cup by hand should clear it up (no grinding).
I get what you're saying, thing I'm confused about is, if he wanted to turn it into a mountain bike, why put a springer on it in the first place?
