I don't know of any dummy shocks, but maybe a more serious mtn biker would, and post a lead for you.
OTOH, if the shock is dead, or you're 100% sure you don't want to use it in the future, you might be able to dismantle it, and make a dummy out of by something as simple as putting a piece of 1" wooden dowel inside, and some coat hanger wire outside to keep it compressed. Not beautiful, but cheap and effective.
