Step 1. Find an old steel mtn bike with horizontal dropouts. Most with horizontal dropouts will have threaded 1" rigid forks. Many of these, especially if they have issues with rear wheel or shifting, are near to free.
Alternate: One of the many cheap 'fixie' frames, depending on how deep your parts box/pockets are. Just use a riser stem&bar and a smaller frame than you would for road type riding.

That is part of the problem, the only single speeds I find are 27.5 or 29er's. I may have to build one of those and just buy the more expensive tires.
