I picked up a '96 Trek 2300 road bike that had a serious problem with the handlebar stem frozen in the fork tube. After trying every trick in the book, I cut the handlebar stem and removed the fork thinking that I could heat the fork tube and get the stem out. No luck! the stem is in the fork forever. I want to look on ebay for a fork but I'm not sure of the measurements. The threaded portion of the fork is 1" OD so do I need to be looking for a 1" threaded fork with a non integrated headset? Also, if anyone has one laying around, please let me know.

If you need a new headset anyway, you might want to think about going threadless. Lots of options out there. 1 inch is what you will need. Loads of threadless stems out there in 1 1/8" that will fit with a shim spacer.
I have a 1" threaded Trek fork with carbon legs and steel steer tube, very good condition
I have a 1" threadless Ouzo Pro all carbon fork, 43mm rake, very good condition
