Man I can't stand triple tree forks on a ride.
Besides killing the turning radius and denting the gas tank that 'solid feel' ride is like a brick and they usually leave you few inexpensive braking options.
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 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, just on someone elses ride ;-}
