80mm travel fork

Hi Guys any advice please.

I have a lovely Kona Caldera ('98 vintage before they went Aluminium) that is great other than the old Judy T2 which I fear might need replacing as spare parts are apparently impossible to get hold of. The big problem is of course that the Judy T2 was only an 80mm travel fork. This is perfectly adequate for the riding that I do and I don't want to muck up my frame geometry by going for something longer.

Any ideas on a decent 80mm travel front shock?

Trek 8000 circa 2001 (Al censored )
Dawes Kickback 500 circa 1992 (well most of the bits anyway.)

    Rebas and SIDs can all be reduced to 80mm with the all travel system.

    And Tora's if you don't want to spend much.

    Fox also do the F80 but this is probably to expensive

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. I was thinking about a new bike, but there is nothing better in Steel for under a grand and I don't have that kind of money to burn. Besides I love my Kona 8)
    I might have to renew parts slowly though, it gets expensive when you add it all up! Almost the cost of a new bike but not quite. :roll:
