cannondale fathead adapter questions

I have an 02 Cannondale Jekyll 600. The super fatty headshok is leaking. Cdale said they dont carry parts anymore and 3 bikes shops wont touch it. I want to put Rockshox or Fox Float on it To upgrade/modernize it. What adapter works best to take it to 1 1/8 and is there a quality adapter that will except a tapered fork? I plan on using the bike for DH. Please help!

First thing: that is kind of weird about parts availability, because the headshok is still used in various sizes (mostly 50mm, but some 80) on hybrid and townie bikes. I have a Super Fatty DLR80 myself.

But I digress...
