Many mid-90's or so mountain bikes have 68 mm BB and steel frames with a 1 1/8" head tube for a recent, straight-steerer suspension fork. I have at least two in my "stable". Look at CFG (on Amazon); cheap steel frames 26" & 29" (when they're available) with 68 mm BB.

The CFG are new. Many "used" examples haven't even been broken in. Your other option, custom, might be too rich for you.

Not sure it's what you're looking for, but I know the entry level aluminum treks from the late 2000s were overbuilt, strong frames with 68mm bottom brackets. Models like 4300, 4500... Later called "series 4" . Could probably get a frame, or whole bike dirt cheap now.
