finding the right(drilled) fork for a pista concept?

Hey guys, i'm trying to find a good fork that is drilled for a brake for my 06 pista concept, I have seen ramblings that I can just drill the stock fork, but I want to keep the original parts original. There seem to be few options that keep close to the same rake (38mm) the few that I have found are the alpina forks, which i'm trying to stay away from due to the fact that i cant find any sold in the US anymore. I have also come across the fork from the pake french 75 frame which seems to be on the money, but it has a longer axle to crown length, which i'm honestly not sure if that matters. is the pake fork a safer bet? is there a better option buried around the internet somewhere? does someone have an alpina fork for sale!? any help would be appreciated.

Get a Super Pista fork, which is drilled for a front brake. You CANNOT drill the Pista Concept fork. It's exactly the same geometry as the Pista Concept fork and fits perfectly. Even the paint matches. FYI, the rake is 28mm, not 38mm.
