There was a pair of Specialized forks in great condition with an M2 brace on ebay the other night. They went for about £30 plus $15 postage from US. Not a bad buy at all. They were the standard ones in silver, these come up fairly regularly for not too much. The FSX Judy's are getting thin on the ground but are still out there and the early FSX/Ti versions are around and can be found if you ask the right people :wink:
I would put some specialized rigids on and wait for a pair to show up.

This is the older style as on my 94 FSR Stumpy.
the earlier ones are like mag21's where those later ones are essentially Judys.

the ones specced on mine are the even earlier ones without the carbon. i think i might build her fully rigid when i finally refinish her (probably a winter project, next winter)
