Super-long rigid fork?

I was looking at a Lynskey Bootleg frame. It has a lot of things I like (like being the only Lynskey hardtail without a 27.2 seat tube). I'm kind of looking to build up a slack-front rigid bike, but the axle-to-crown as specced is a massive 539mm. Any idea what rigid fork (if any) would work without totally changing the geo?

When you ride the bike, the fork will have some sag, the axle-to-crown would not be 539mm

20% fork sag = 509mm axle-to-crown

25% fork sag = 501.5mm axle-to-crown

30% fork sag = 494mm axle-to-crown


The Trek 1120 comes with a rigid fork that has a 509mm a/c

There's probably more then one brand or manufacturer that has a fork with that a/c measurement.
