1-1/8" Threded Fork?

Anyone know of a manufacturer of 1-1/8" threaded fork for a road bike? I searched here as well as Googled. Mayhaps these don't exist.....
Thanks.

They used to exist in MTB form. I had a '93 vintage Trek rigid fork MTB that came with a 1-1/8" threaded fork and I was able to retrofit an early Rock Shok suspension fork with a 1-1/8" threaded steerer.

I guess by the time the 1-1/8" size got to road bikes, threadless headsets had taken over so there were very few, if any, threaded road forks in that size.

what would you do with it if you got a 1-1/8" threaded fork? do you have a 1-1/8" threaded headset? I do remember a few mtb with 1-1/8 system, but not any road bikes.
