Heres the fork I'm thinking of, its nearly identical to the original on my pioneer except for it doesn't have eyelets.
It measures around 180mm which I think will fall short of your headtube so would need extending......

Do you know anything about the history of the bike? The fork doesn't look original, but do you have any information on the bars and stem? i.e. is that an Andy Powell brazed stem?

Don’t think so. Forks are definitely not original

If it were me I’d get BJ to paint it pearl white, get the decals done in the handwriting style, get an extra set of forks painted the same, with mounts for Us/rollers cams, so you can double up then build it up with Suntour xc9000.

That would be my dream bike......

Looking forward to seeing this develop.
I’ve just bought a purple pioneer from the classifieds and thinking of sending to b Jackson to get painted too.,,
What dimensions is yours?
Is it a 1” or 1 1/8th headtube?
Cheers
