    Probably pressed and glue in some high tech fashion. I seriously doubt they are threaded.

    I am basically wanting to use the stem and crown from an '02 Duke SL in the construction of a custom built rigid fork.

    I would think that they could be removed by heating the juction up (with a torch or something) and be broken free from top down. It would be worth trying if it wasn't a big loss if you screw something up.

    The Legs are propably

    are taken down to a really low temp so they will shrink and then press into the crown. When they warm back up to room temp. they expand back to nominal size and have an increased press fit. I would not take a torch to the crown!!! That would change the strength of the aluminum for the worst. I have seen many old style crowns on ebay, the ones that have bolts to secure the legs. You can usually get them for under $10.
