I think those crowns are formed out of sheet steel and welded. The steerer and legs are then brazed. I've had a number of mid 80s Treks and Cannondales with those Tange forks. They were fine.

I have an '87 Sirrus floating around here somewhere. Like yours, 700x28 is a no-go. 700x25s fit fine. That is on rims with an external width of 19.5mm. You should be fine with 700x26 GKs.
