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.
