Well here are some other answers, just in case anyone else gets the bug:
--Yes, almost all "springer" forks are made in the same factory and differ only as to intended wheel size/fork length. There are some "Schwinn Black Phantom" and etc forks out there that have painted legs, but are also otherwise the same. Standard springers are on the 1", threaded format.
-- 3 speed hubs have the 123mm spacing. Like Sturmey Archers.
-- the best online sources have been mailorder joints that service BMX, since the (fading) standards for BMX cranks, headsets and posts are the same as for cruisers.
