My suggestion is to look for a used late 80s mtb. If you find one that has forward facing horizontal dropouts then you can convert it to IGH or SS if you want. You should be able to outfit the bike for a few hundred dollars all in (including the cost of the bike). I bought an '87 Bianchi Grizzly and added fenders, a rack and swapped the bars to north roads, added studded tires and have been pretty pleased with it's performance in foul weather.
