"The steer tube seems to be 1.25" in diameter, is that possible?"
Yes. This was the Gary Fisher Evolution headset. A good friend of mine worked for Gary Fisher back in the day and this was one of his projects. My friend had a run of mountain bikes produced in Taiwan under his own name (Stevenson) and many had 1 1/4" headsets. This was about 1995. My son raced one of these and the last time we bought a headset for it was a Cane Creek (or the former name of Cane Creek which I can't recall now). You may be able to find 1 1/4" components still.
