So my three options for new forks are as follows:

Circa 2003 RC38 LT, uncut steerer (non-replaceable), remote lock-out; reduced to 80mm travel (pretty much same age as frame)

2001 RC36 Evo III's, spring conversion fitted, uncut replaceable bolt-in steerer type crown.

2007 RC39 C-type 100mm (reduced to 80mm travel) forks with new uncut steerer (non-replaceable steerer)

Price-wise, each are a lot less than a set of new forks from Pace and even cheaper than just a new crown/steerer/stanchion combo (from Pace) for the RC39XC's I currently have.

Thoughts chaps ? :?:

Replacement front forks now sourced thanks to Tim (justbackdated on here) and build progressing; set of fully-serviced 100mm RC39's with new decals up for sale :D

Nearing completion now, will be collecting on my return from working away for three weeks, just one last issue to fix. Turns out forgot that my Easton carbon riser bars won't fit through the Pace RC45 stem due to the one piece bar-clamps so now on the hunt for an RC46 or something similar. Currently have a temporary set of flat bars fitted but this isn't going to cut it long-term.
