No use on the super big chainring. Thanks for the compliments.

Are you asking about the inside diameter on the steering tube (which runs through the headtube)? The steering tube attached to the top of the fork most likely accepts an .833" diameter stem, and not a 1" one.

I'm certain about this for all '70s-'80s Varsities, and for most of the '60's. My only uncertainty is for one in the early '60s. For instance I have a '62 Continental which uses a slightly larger stem, but still not a full 1 incher.

Best of luck.
