Default Suspension corrected fork height

Hey folks,

I've been digging around for info but still feel a little confused. I need to build a rigid fork to fit a mid 90's m/l Yo Eddy that was built to have suspension. Is there a magic axle-crown height? What is the range that folks have been riding and still feels good? Thanks a lot.

And if that proved difficult, a 420mm wouldn't be bad either.
