Skewer sizing

Not a bike mechanic here and there may be an obvious answer but anyway. I am going to put my Kestrel Legend SL up for sale and was getting ready to put the original Oval Concepts 733 wheel set back on, however for some reason I can't locate the front wheel skewer. Can someone tell me if another mfg's skewer will fit and work properly and if so, can someone tell me the size and possibly recommend a brand to use? Thank you in advance.

For traditional quick-releases there are only four sizes that Im aware of:
1) front road/MTB
2) rear road
3) rear mtb
4) rear special for trailer attachment

N/A for OP, but ..

I had 1 oddball , a QR for a folding bike with a 74mm wide hub bike friday got them for their builds..

Just sold it, included, with a Shimano - Brompton dynamo hub front wheel ...


Measure?, typical front hubs are 10cm wide across lock-nuts inside face of forks.

Thank you, that pretty much sums it up as all fronts are interchangeable.

Don't have a cm measuring tool but I'll try a conversion of inches. Thank you
