Tom, I would not do this ! You can of course shorten the steerer on your current fork and use a different stem t approximate the bar position, but remember if you go to a threaded steerer then you're going to need to carry 32mm headset wrenches to install and remove the fork !

If the existing fork fails, then sure, you can find a replacement with a threaded steerer but I would not try to thread your existing one.

Your bike, your choice. but that's my comment
