For my secondary beater bike.
Tange makes a 1" threaded road fork for $40.
If you don't need cantis or wide tires it would work.
I've got an old AMP Research fork...
disclaimer: I sell and repair bicycles
At my lbs they still sell 26" canti mtb forks with 1" threaded steerers for like 20 bucks. New and steel.
