1" threaded fork for 26" vintage MTB with midblade braze ons?

I'm looking for a rigid replacement fork for my 86 Schwinn High Sierra. I was wondering if anyone knows of options out there that have mid blade eyelets for mounting a front touring rack.

Check Surly-

IIRC, the Long Haul Trucker has the 26" option and as a tourer has midfork eyelets. However, it probably is 1 1/8" but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Otherwise, you'll have to plunder another bike with those characteristics- which is a chore to find them.

The easier solution is to get a different rack that mounts either with P clamps or canti bosses.

I know there was a High Sierra fork floating around on eBay a while back but not sure if it is still around.
