Default Re: springer fork

OK, I'm looking at all these springer forks available and my next question is, "what about front brakes?"
I'm pretty handy with metal fabrication so mounting my existing brakes shouldn't present a big problem. I would guess from the pix that most of these are designed for other than caliper, cantilever style brakes but fabbing a mount shouldn't be a big issue. It's just a matter of getting the alignment right...right? I mean as long as the pads are aligned with the rim correctly, what's the problem with adapting my brakes to a springer?
