Default Finding a replacement fork for 94 Wicked Lite

I picked up my Fat a few years ago and it came with some Manitou forks that worked wonders on the rolling single track of upstate NY. Well, now I live out west and the rocky terrain just ain't as much fun with my Fat (and, honestly, it isn't as much fun period). I have started transitioning it into my daily commuter and want to swap the suspension in for a rigid fork - I understand that finding a replica is, uh, not cheap so I'm looking for something a little more reasonable. 1" threadless forks are hard to find anyway, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a company that is currently doing replicas (I know Soma used to produce a classic CX fork but discontinued it). Not sure what kind of suspension correction I need or what other measurements might be necessary to maintain the geometry, but any advice is greatly appreciated!

Here's my ride:





Thanks!

EDIT: After a little more searching, I found this guy: https://www.somafabshop.com/shop/pro...3?category=774

Anyone have any experience with these?
