Why not run a 700c front? A replacement should then be easier to find... you can run the two different tires and still carry one spare tube, as the tube will fit both. The Atala I did for my father is 700C rear and 27" front, running matching panaracers I think.
Or, f you'e shelling out a bunch of $$$ for that ebay replacement fork, I bet yo could recoup most of that $$$ if he handling is off after the install when you sell it on. Sell it for $20 less and consider it an experiment...
