Gravel grinder project advice

Hey all,
Was thinking it would be fun to "build" a gravel grinder after seeing many cheap (sub 100s) 1980s/90s/early 2000s rigid mountanin bikes on craigslist. I already have a spare set of drop bars to use. I would like to get a straight (instead of curved) fork with a disk brake, preferably alloy. What are some nice, relatively cheap options? Would a modern fork fit an older bike? Would the geometry make sense?
