Easy. All you need is some spacers, washers and fluid from Mojo. De-pressurise the fork, remove the air assembly add the spacer and re-assemble with the correct type/ volume of fluids. I've had 100-80mm and 120mm to 75mm travel (445mm a-c) which is retro friendly. Full pictoral instructions on the Fox technical website :)

F100 470mm a-c, F80 450mm a-c

Could get one of these Frames... 18 ", not sure of the year... Quite good condition. No dents, no heavy chainsuck, no cracks of course. After a nice surface job and with decals it would be as new...
How much would it be worth? How much could the guy ask for?
Thanks

Mountain Mayhem looms.. dry build time. A retro Ritchey saddle is in the post, amber wall tyres to be fitted, cables on order and HG70 chain at the ready. I hope to ride this weekend. The set-up doesn't feel quite there yet, but once it is out on the trail I'll have a better idea what needs to be done. I may keep the forks or fit Judys. I have swapped the brakes from the back to the front as I never liked the way Pace forks look and the cable routing is crap.
