You might be able to get a 1" fork from Marzocchi, but more likely you are going to need a new frame.
I do not know where to get 1" forks...

Don't bother.
All you will find are cheap forks that aren't worth it.
Or you will have to spend far more than the bike is worth to get a quality one.

Either have her ride the bike as is or use the money to invest in a different bike.

Marzocchi used to make one, but good luck finding one.

I used to have a 1" Ti steerer tube that fit Manipoo made by the shop who made all the ti TNT stuff back in the day. Some mulignan stole it. Bastige.

That was a beautiful piece, even if it was destined to be obsolete.

You still want some pedal washers Girk? I finally got to ride them last weekend as the lifts opened. Didn't hit the cranks once.
