    CB125S looking for a silver 1.60x18" fr. alloy rim similar to my 1.85x18" rear rim

    I've got a 1975' CB125S that I'm building wheels for,on a budget...using oem spokes(10 ga.)that've been nicely cleaned up and recoated.I installed a 1.85x18" rear rim from an 83' XL200R,it's D.i.D oem alloy and works well.I've been looking for a silver oem standard style(not H pattern or flanged) 1.60 x 18" alloy front rim 36 hole drilled for small hubs(5-6.5")to match my rear and I've not been able to find anything used(prefer)or new except the 'rain catcher' H pattern flanged style or a Sun rim from Buchanans for $200+ The original size wheels were 1.60x17" rear and 1.40x18" fr.
    I don't want to use steel because I like the lighter alloy rim for less unsprung spinning weight(it does make a difference having lightweight wheels especially on a small bike)and so I'm still searching... Any of you see anything that'll work ?
