Need Fork Oil Suggestions for an Old Marzocchi

The Marzocchi XCR (1996?) on my daughter's little Kona AA went splat. Before I knew better I ordered the seals, bought a long allen wrench and a pair of snap ring pliars and basically committed to a rebuild. I got the specs for the oil (SAE 20, Marzocchi part #52.51) and this looks like it'll be as hard to source as the seals (ordered from the UK). Can someone suggest an equivalent oil? I did just enough reading on weight/viscosity to make me come here cap in hand.

Motorcycle fork oil. Cheap and easy to get at any motorcycle shop. Variety of viscosities available, just match to the spec for the fork.
