Marzocchi forks of that era are great and parts are still available from the likes of UK Bike Store. Easy to work on too.

These: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=223486

I've had two pairs of these and they're excellent. They're stiffer and lighter (by 3/4lb) than Z2s,, and more race oriented. Some parts are still available, and like Marzocchi they see,m to go on and on. THey'll take up to a 210mm disc though, where Pace or Z2s are noodling about with 160...
