    vintage mountain bike shock fork help (threaded)

    i have a old (1991) gary fisher mtb with a 1 1/4 threaded fork.

    i would like to put a shock fork on it.

    anyone know of (or have) a 1 1/4 threaded shock fork for sale?

    im also looking for a 1 1/4 stem.

    or do you guys think its more realistic to go threadless? (anyone have a complete setup?)

    thanks

    Your best bet would be to get some reducers that would allow you to use a normal 1 1/8" headset and steerer...see the last page of the "Show off your vintage mountain bike" thread, someone has a Miyata Shredder with a 1.25" head tube.
