Fixing old Rockshox suspension fork

Hi !
I have a vintage Titanium RockShox suspension fork (Came with a GREAT Merlin titanium frame) - I dont know the model (I didnt even pick it up from the seller of the Merlin) of the fork but I do know that it has 1'' steerer tube (Vintage ... I know).
The fork needs a repair (I really dont know what its mechanical condition - it does need a repair)

Should I even consider fixing it ? (Regardless of its age)
Does someone know about a shop that handle vintage suspencion forks ?

Hey- check this website out: www.enduroforkseals.com They have a pretty great array of manuals for overhauling forks, from older stuff to contemporary models, and sell seals, sliders, etc. at a decent price. Also, the dude who handles customer service and service questions is amazingly helpful.

It's likely a 1994 Mag 21 SL Ti. (the only titanium bits were the crown pinch bolts, the brake posts and the brace bolts)

Will it hold air? They were fairly durable forks. An oil change may be all it needs.

As already said, Enduro sells the main seals and has the service manual in .pdf form on their site.
