I have done this same thing. It's a struggle to find a fork that meets all of your requirements. An air spring vs coil spring is going to be lighter and easier to adjust to your weight. You also need it to be a 1 1/8" straight steerer tube. Finally unless you are doing an upgrade to wheels brakes you need rim brakes and a quick release axle. You can look around for a number of different offerings and a few pop up here and there but the easiest solution is the RockShox Recon Silver TK. It hits all the requirements you will have and unless you are hitting big drops or aggressive downhill riding it will serve you well. I ran one for a year at 250#. They are on ebay often in the $200 range.
