SE Landing Gear forks question

Hi. Been searching; found nothing. Does anyone here know what size crown race the 1" threaded SE Landing Gear forks take? I need a 26" straight blade/cruiser=style fork in 1" threaded, with a 26.4 crown race.

Thanks for any info,
-rob

That should be the old school size, The newer ones should fit that bill also.

You can always take it to a shop somewhere and get them to use a Crown race cutter on it if it doesn't fit. I did that to my Landing Gear forks when I had a extra piece of pipe welded into the bottom/inside of the fork and also had the welder weld the top along where the crown race sits. I then ground the extra material down and finished it off with the crown race cutter to use a Stronglight A9 lower headset race/bearing on my Littlejohn. This was after it encountered a tree at high speed, head on, and the headset tube was ovalized (which was also welded up and refaced) and the original fork was mangled beyond repair.
