Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

1 1/8" threaded stems and headsets are not that common, most parts will be of the MTB domain, although there are some 1 1/8" threaded road parts out there, but not many..

Run it as threadless. Threadless is far superior anyways.

i don't know where you'd find a headset and stem. i don't believe they are made any longer.

Wrong. 1 1/8" threaded components exist, mostly mtb, although there are a few 1 /18" road components floating around out there..

Ebay's got the hookup for sure.
