Looking to buy a bike for less than $500 (not kilo tt)

Hey guys so basically i came into some money (long story). I have around 500$ and I was thinking what to use it on and couldn't think of any thing besides a new bike. I know this question probably been asked before but are there any other good steel fixies in the 400-500 dollar range other than the Kilo tt, that are as good?
