    From what I found, most bikes are 1 inch or 1 and 1/8th inch forks. They can be threaded, or non threaded, so be careful and know what you have. The difference of an eighth of an inch should be appaerant with a ruler or tape measure but I don't know where to measure from. The "steering tube" is where your measurement should be, IDK if you'd be able to measure the outside or inside diameter though. Good luck! Your story made me laugh so hard. Every single word kills my sides. Your profile pic is gold too haha
