(I thought that the Motobecane had a tapered head tube, but after tearing it apart I discovered it did not. Yay for me, as that made it compatible with my new bike.)

Thanks for all the replies and advice, I learned a bit about MTB forks that I previously did not know (again, previously I was a former BMX racer and road cyclist, current big-wheel BMX rider).
Glad you got something that will work for ya! I had thought of the Suntour exchange program, but when I checked out was was available, they were all tapered steerers, at least that is all that I found.
