Old Cannondale Stems

Help Guys!!!
I have an old (1994) Cannondale Killer V900 bicycle that came with a one and a quarter inches size steerer tube.

The bike has been in a closet since 1997. My wife wants me to get rid of it, but I am attached to the bike. I brought it out about a month ago and had a lbs clean it up. I am amazed that the bike still runs like a dream.

My problem is that my 45year old back needs to straighten up on the bike a bit. I have been asked by my mechanic to look for a one and a quarter inches, 30degrees or 40 degrees rise, 90mm or 100mm threadless stem. I am having problems finding one, because the standard size for stems are now one and an eight inches or one inch.

Please guys, help with how I can solve this problem.

I have rediscovered the joy I always had cycling.

Thanks for any suggestions.
