Does this look like a LHT fork to anyone else?

That crown design is very common on steel forks and certainly wasnt invented by Surly, just like Surly didn't invent the touring bike, as people around here seem to think.

Surly also sells the crowns separately, so maybe that part is Surly.

Surly(like many firms) is more of a design studio, not a bike company. The things they sell, they have bought from others. Some of these things are items that they've designed and commissioned others to make for them; others come out of some weird maxway-style catalog. The crowns like these are found on the forks of many taiwanese bikes; i clicked on the link, expecting to see the raleigh one-way or whichever Raleigh has the fork that looks just like my LHT.
