Triple tress I've shopped all have disc caliper tabs. and side pull mountable

Triple trees look cool but I'll take a mountain bike front fork with V and disc brake bosses on it over anything.
Great strength, really great ride, and good cheap brake options.
There are plenty that will drop in a 1" beach cruiser using the original forks hardware, I would not use a 1" suspension fork on any Motored Bike. You will experience the fork twitch during braking. 1 1/8 works fine no twitch I can typically get one for ~$50 from my local bike shop.

Anyway that's just just me, I look forward to seeing how yours turns out as I do really like the 'chopper' look, You need not settle for the chopper look. Buy the 32" tree not the "36just on someone elses ride ;-}
I respect that--- to each his own
