I'm looking for a 63mm travel fork with the shortest axle to crown length I can find/make. I'd like a disc mount, if possible, and am not opposed to a frankenfork, e.g. 1999 SID w/ an early Judy bolt on crown or a modified White Bros. Any suggestions?

also think a used 97-99 Z2 (atom bomb/bam/superfly)... I'm not sure the a-bomb's had disc mount though, although the a-bomb & superfly (65ish mm real travel) were a bit shorter a-c than the bam's.
Can be found relatively cheap on ebay, easy to rebuild/work on, less flexy than the sid/judy's & bushings last a lot longer. There were a coupla issues with the 'fly's, but sounds like you want something on the lighter end of spectrum.

I'm not too concerned about weight. I had a Superfly on my Bonty years ago, good performance but poor design. The placement of the air valves sucked. Anyone know the length of these forks?

Marzocchi's are know for their inmens higher built-in height compared to all the other brand's out there. So if you're looking for a low built fork; search for a Manitou or a RS for instance.
