Worksman cruiser for winter?

I was and still am considering buying a Worksman bicycle. It looks good, its heavy-duty and made in the USA.

The only thing I was wondering is if you could mount studded Nokian snow tires on those rims. I think it would be an ideal bike for winter riding if you could. Especially with the fenders. You can also order alloy rims with stainless steel spokes. I would also opt for the 3 speed hub. Does anyone know anything about the Retro Springer front fork that they offer? It's quite a monstrosity, but I wonder how it works:

I have heard of people having trouble with the standard long handlebars hitting their knees. Do you think that the optional H3A low rise ATB-style handlebars would work better?
