Finding a good 1" suspension fork is like finding gold. I have 1" threaded forks on my 88 Nishiki Ariel, a 92 Nishiki Ariel and a 93 Stumpy. The 88 Ariel has a Duo Track with elasotmers so hard it might as well be rigid. The Stumpy has a vintage Judy that's holding up quite well. The best of the group is the Scott, Clark Kent spring fork on the 92 Nishiki. I had it rebuilt a number of years ago and it was well worth it. If you can find one of those in working condition, you ought to pursue it.
