Your not getting a reply because your on the wrong forum, not saying that you not welcome, just that you'd do a lot better in the mountain bike forum,
You see, their morals, their's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

I tried for over a year to find a RockShox Judy for my Nishiki Ariel with a 1" threaded steerer. They're out there if I spent more than the bike is worth. Lot's of luck if you need a 5 1/2 inch steerer because everyone else does too. And you have to be careful because many of the shocks are elastomer, not spring, and the elastomers are now toast. I would have settled for a RockShox Quad21 but they were not readily available at a reasonable price either.
I finally settled on a SR Suntour shock from NYCBikes with a 5 5/8" threaded steerer. I used that for two seasons, then the springs relaxed. So I moved on to a NOS DuoTrack 2002. That seems to be working out.
I sincerely wish you luck finding your fork, be prepared to spend some bucks and bid often for a Judy.
Here's a pic of the Nishiki with the Suntour fork. BTW this was a rigid to suspension conversion, but that's another story.
