RST is the only co. I know of that makes new 1" threaded suspension forks that aren't total trash. They work but are not fancy at all, no damping etc, just springs and grease or oil.
i'm using a 1 1/8" threadless headset. it was a tight fit but it works until i can afford some actual triple tree forks from choppersus.com
