dusted off my old faithful Trek 930

Its been hanging in the garage. With kids and all I havent ridden in a Looong time. Its a 93-94 Trek 930 purple green glossy fade, STX, TB chromoly with a few upgrades - back in the day.
Long story short, i put an Anti gravity Shock on it in 94, and now the elastomers are dust. I must have tossed the rigid fork, cannot find it anywhere. Where can i get a rigid fork to put on? 1&1/8 threaded. Is there anyone else out there that held onto their rigid fork when they went with shocks?

What do i do ? Ive got the desire to get back out there.

You should be able to find a replacement rigid fork.

Your LBS can find you a suitable replacement.

Its a nice double butted True Temper cromoly 90s MTB.

Lots of those still around.

You need something like this:

Universal Cycles -- Dimension Rigid Non Disc Fork

You could either get another threaded setup, or get a new headset and stem at the same time to go threadless.

i agree with going in the direction of a threadless conversion. would also really update the bike and I think would give more options for future upgrades

Agree with that, 1-1/8" threaded was pretty much a dead end construction.
