Where can I find a proper track fork, drilled?

So I ordered my frame, but soma was out of forks, so I gotta find one aftermarket. Can anybody recommend a good track fork for $200 or less that is DRILLED for a brake? With very little rake? I'm going to ride this bike on the street and the track. Websites and LBS's that do mail order are most welcome.
Thanks!

Yeah, but those aren't track forks. I want one that doesn't bulge out front, but that comes more or less straight down.

Ah yes... I've been looking for one as well.

Not having much luck... and I also don't need that brake hole.

220mm + steerer. 1" threaded. 40mm or less rake.

Trying to not spend over $200!

Bikeworks has a straight fork, but it has a rake. Not sure what it is though.

No problem, I was looking at that frameset too. The guy there seems pretty nice, and it sounds like he got f****** for doing what he thought was right. His prices are good too. Post some pictures when you finish it.
