    Early 90's Specialized Stumpjumper - replacing the fork?

    Hi all,

    I'm new to the forum and newish to bike mechanics. Hoping you can help me with my new project...

    I picked up an early 90's Stumpjumper for $75 on craigslist recently. The frame is in good shape, just needs to be cleaned up a bit. Most of the components need some detailing, tuning, etc but seem okay. I think this thing sat around neglected for the past 10 years. Unfortunately, the fork is junk as far as I can tell. I pulled it off and it turns out it's a 1" threaded steering tube.

    So where should I be looking to replace the fork? Seems like 1" suspension forks aren't even made anymore? Can I go threadless and get a new headset? I'm really hoping to keep a suspension fork on this thing to make it trail-worthy, but is my only realistic option to go rigid?

    Any advice is appreciated!
