I would put a piece of handlebar tape or a rubber shim on the stanchions underneath the hose clamps, much the same way we used to put something similar on the frame to protect the paint when mounting brackets/water bottle cages/Pletscher racks back in the day.  That way you won't mar them should you decide to either go with suspension later, or try to sell the fork after you swap it out for a rigid fork.

Good thinking BB, but those, uh, stanchions are looking mighty corroded already. Not much there worth saving, methinks...


Cheap abused fork
already highly roached
No harm done here.

That said there's no way in this universe I'd advise someone to do this with a decent or workable fork as this will DEFINITELY DAMAGE THE FORK.
