    Does the frame you have currently have a headset? I would probably suggest getting a new headset so that you have all the pieces (i.e. crown race) and something that will work in your frame (meant for a 1.5" steerer tube) and will reduce down to a regular 1-1/8" headset. That will open up some fork options for you, rigid or suspended.

    Your bike originally came from the factory with the Headshok P-Bone M fork which had 60mm of travel. You can buy the original fork from eBay right here if you wanted to keep it somewhat original.

As far as a rigid fork goes, you'll probably be looking for something with around a 400mm axle-to-crown length (that would be my guess).

    It may be worth bringing up this topic in the Vintage, Retro, Classic thread as they will be able to help you out a bit more.

    *edit* keep in mind that you're also looking for a fork with v-brake studs, as your bike (according to bikepedia does not have disc brakes). If all else fails, contact a couple frame/fork builders and see what they can make for you.
