Yes, the fork doesn't seem to work very nice, I don't think it is broken I think that is the model that has 50 mm travel and is a little short (418 mm).
I have bought here in the forum a 98 Rock Shox Sid.
I will change it as soon as i can, I am repainting it.
I have also picked up an xt v-brake 739 set, the gripshift, srt 800-x and a selle itlaia flite tt saddle.

Here's mine. I think the SIDs may have too much travel for the frame. You'd be better off finding something that was available in 95. I went for some RC35 MXCDs.

How are you going to repaint it? Mine needs to be repainted, but stripping carbon is not easy, and scares me.

... I am repainting the fork, I don't know how to do with the frame, I don't hink is easy to remove the paint from the carbon, there is some point of rust, I think I will make some point painting.

The Sid have 63 mm travel and is only 2 cm higher than the Marzocchi.
