Hi I'm Spork from the time contiuum called

Can't find 27 x 1 and 1/4 Inch Accessories If The Milky Way Depended On It

I dont think its a coincidence I actually need a rear wheel 27" x 1-1/4" even ... now as you so eloquently call it.

You are the masters of elocution!

Help is always appreciated

It might be temporary... people are dredging old bikes out of their garages and either refurbishing, flipping, or both. I was lucky to find some 28-630 tires.

All things ISO-630 are available on eBay, although I hate to recommend that. Supply isn't a problem if you're willing to pay...

What the heck are 27 x 1 1/4" accessories anyhow?

OP you from Hawkins ?

Wasn't there a thread recently in C&V from someone who came into a buyout of an old collection of 27" bike wheels, both low & high flange ? I think it's in the post tile, check the C&V listings and welcome to BF you Stranger Thing

You can't have looked all that well.

CR-18 rims in 27" are on the market. I think Alex offers sum as well. Tire selection is a bit limited but still pretty good.
