Default Wicked Fork Question?

Guys,
I'm going to order a rigid fork from Waltworks, but I need to know what the axle to crown height is on a 1990 Wicked in 19". Any help would be great. Thanks guys!

I have a 90' wicked also but no original fork, the best I can do is give you the frame specs from the 1990 cat. walt works should be able to draw you up a good fork to match your riding style.

size: 19.5"
head tube: 70 degrees
seat tube: 72 degrees
toptube: 22.83"
bottom bracket: 11.875"
chain stays: 17.125"
wheel base: 41.69"
Fork rake: 1.75"

I have a Wicked fork for a '90 Wicked and it is about 15 7/8 inches long. I am not sure what that is metric.

Default wicked fork

So that means it would be about 405mm. I've heard that some of these forks had axle to crown height of between 380-390. Anybody else have any answers?

Default fork length

All three of my Wicked forks measure 395mm. Two are from 1991 and one is from 1993.
