If your hanger is bent and won't straighten, look here: http://derailleurhanger.com/gt.htm
Try to match the one you've got.
As far as upgrading, a new fork would be a great suggestion. I wouldn't suggest one with long travel. Since your frame was designed around a fork with 70 to 80 mm of travel. (That was a lot back then!). I'd stick to one with 80 to 100 mm of travel. If you can find an adjustable travel fork that's the way to go.
In case you don't know, you DO have a threadless headset and it's 1-1/8". So, most of the current crop of forks will easily fit. Something like: http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/152...-2-Headset.htm
