old suspension fork needed

i need a suspension fork for an old canondale mountain bike that's 1 inch with threading. i posted about this bike before. http://bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=180546 and there's pictures of it here http://www.getawesome.com/bike.htm. my local LBS guy said it needed a fork that was 1" with threading. so if anyone can tell me where to buy one, or specific types and models of suspension forks that are 1" and threaded that i can look out for on ebay that would really help me out. i was hoping someone might have one laying around somewhere that they wouldn't mind getting rid of.

i took this bike out for some easy trails yesterday and it worked fine, but my friend wants to hit some harder trails soon so i want a suspension fork. if i end up going a lot in the near future i will buy a new bike.....but for now, i wanna be cheap.

I would ride it the way it is. By the way, your front quick release is not clamped correctly.

I have an old rock shock gold (air / oil ) suspension fork you can have if you want.
One inch threaded. Just pay for shipping.
I'll measure the tube length when I get home to let you know what it is to make sure it will fit you bike.
