I'm looking for some cable clamps for a 1-and-1/8th inch top tube. I'm really tired of using zip-ties and I like the stock paint job just fine (i.e. not going to pay for brazing and repainting just for braze-ons).
I used the search until I was blue in the face and nothing came up
All I can find out there is ZEUS and AGPA cable clips for 1-inch top tubes.
Does anybody even make them for 1 1/8" tubes?

I had one once, IIRC it was Diacompe. I used it on a mixte bike to clamp the rear brake cable housing to the seat tube, sold the bike, and have not seen one since. They were made, but they seem to be pretty scarce.
Good luck, and please share the source if you find one!

I was looking for some at one time. I ended up giving up. I don't think I've seen a bike with oversize tubes and brake cable clamps.

Shimano made 1.125" top tube cable bands for Teledyne Linar, for the teledyne titan. Good luck finding them, folk have put out want to buy messages on the CR list for them, with even quite hefty willing to buy prices, with no luck.
