Desperately Seeking: Rigid 26" MTB fork with 1" steerer

Hi all,
I am working on an old Ibis Mojo trying to get her on the road/trails again. It had a Rock Shox but I would prefer to go with a rigid fork. These seem to be getting scarce. I would like a cro-mo fork if possible with a axle-to-crown of 465-470 mm. Threaded steerer should be 6 inches or unthreaded steerer would work also. I can pay $$ fair price and shipping. If you have something lying around can you please give me a shout? Thank you, Stevie.

I assume canti/V brake bosses?

There are 1” rigid mtb forks on eBay. But 465-470 seems huge for a 26er and likely a tough find especially with a 1” steerer.

I think my Kona P2 has an ATC of 410mm.

Yes looking for cantilever studs. The axle to crown is for a suspension-corrected type fork. Thank you, Stevie

You didn't say how much you would pay, but it's important since I think you'll need to have it custom fabricated. I've never seen a 26" rigid fork with anything near that "length".

No bike with a 1" steerer ever had a 460mm axle-crown length AFAIK. 1" steerers were long dead by the time longer-travel suspension forks were a thing. Unless somebody mated your old Ibis with a frankenfork that was modified to make it long travel. 100mm travel (4", long travel) forks for 26" wheels are about 440mm A-C.
