any ideas where to get one without having one built?
i'm thinking about 35mm rake, headtube is 7" long...i guess i prefer a lugged steel fork but carbon or Al will please me if it has the right amount of rake.

Had a similar problem. Not a huge amount of forks out there now that meet these specs so you're looking at NOS or 2nd hand. EBay, bike swaps/jumbles are your best friends here.
I found a NOS tange chrome fork that was ok but ended up getting one built. No surprises that the custom fork worked so much better. I'd recommend this route if you can, should be able to get a custom fork and paint for a reasonable ammount.
May want to ask in the SingleSpeed/Fixed gear forum too.
