Default Help, 35mm forks on a frame mount evo

Hi guys.. and ladies! I need some help, hopefully someone can steer me in the right direction.

I have a 2000 sporty frame and a set of 35mm forks (from a ironhead I believe) that I want to use together. After trying to mock it all up I learned that the stem is to short in the head tube. Do you I have any options? I've been reading that some shovel's were 35mm with a 1" stem but don't know if the stem is long enough? Does anyone have any advice? Will a shovel bottom triple tree work?

Thanks so much everyone, appreciate any help.

Chris
