Just a thought, your Marzocchi triple fork might have a 1.25" steering tube on it (most higher-end forks and bikes use that diameter)... while the Micargi General has a 1" diameter head tube. It took some searching before I found a disc-brake-compatible fork with a 1" tube (ultimately found it on eBay)... I only wish I had the front suspension you're going to have on yours - that will be sweet.

Good luck!
Man when I was a kid a bannana seat was the "in thing" to have! I rode many an hour on dirt hills on one. Don't remember anyone having ADD OCC you got your but paddled if you didn't act right in class back then LOL! I really do think by burning off the natural energy kids have they didn't have the issues a lot of kids have today. You had to do something back then to get a around 6 flags, go swimmin....somethin not just play with a joystick.
