Marzocchi for sure for reliability, maybe change the oil every couple years. Also the older Marzocchi forks can usually swap steerer tubes, easily converted to 1". Not a big fan of trying to deal with the guy, but if you google Marzocchi Mark you'll find a guy that rebuilds and sells forks.

My experience is just assume whatever you buy needs to be rebuilt, unless it comes rebuilt from above mentioned dude. I would source seals/bushings, and whatever oil/grease is needed before even buying the fork. Or new elastomer kit if it's a Manitou or something like that.

What length 1" steerer do you need? I have a bunch of older forks, including 1" stuff.
