Quill stems require a threaded headset (at one time there was an adapter, but I don't think it exists anymore). If you have a threaded 1-1/8" fork, you can find a split sleeve with a 1/16" wall to reduce the ID from 1" to 7/8". Or if you have a 1" threaded fork you might find headset reducer sleeves for your frame.
