Brent makes his own stems and could probably do a custom OS quill for you. Get out the checkbook, though as his works of art aren't cheap. www.steelmancycles.com

Couple of years ago I bought two Girvin Flexstems (with the hinge and the elastomer bumper to absorb shock) for my kids' mountain bikes for two bucks each off a clearance table. They were in 1-inch boxes, but when I got them home, they both had 1 1/8-inch quills. Not worth taking them back, so I just tossed them in the parts drawer. I don't remember the extension or anything else about them, but if you absolutely can't find anything else and can stand the geek factor, you can have one or both for the price of postage.
