Center pull brakes on newer fork?

I have a '93 Trek 930 MTB with the original suspension fork on it still....no longer works well though. I'd like to put a rigid fork on it, but all the rigid forks I find online....new or used on ebay.... don't have the cable housing stop anymore. I'd like to keep the center-pull cantis if possible.

I need a 1 1/8" threadless fork with a housing stop, or some kind of adaptor.

Thanks for any help....

That pic is from harris cylcery's webpage, it's the first one that came up when I googled it. The one shown is for a threaded headset. I don't know if they have one for 1 1/8 threadless. You could probably modify it to make it work though. Try your LBS, they probably have something laying around.
