Trying to locate a set of 1" 1/4 rigid forks for an old mb frame I'm converting to a single speed.

Any ideas apart from e-bay?

    get some 1 1/8th and some headset reducer cups.

    Reducer cups? 1 1/4 is bigger than 1 1/8! (1.25 > 1.125)

    yes.

    Headset Reducers - regular types.
    CNC alloy shim/cups that press into larger size headtubes to allow smaller size forks and headsets to be retro-fitted to frames.
    e.g. to convert a 11/4" frame to accept to11/8" forks etc.

    I read the OP to mean he wanted to fit a 1 1/4 fork into a 1 1/8 frame?

    EDIT: Ok, I read it 6 more times and i understand now :oops:
