I've been looking for an alloy front rim for the 75' CB400F 1.60x18" that has the same style(non-shouldered)and spoke pattern as my oem steel chrome rim.

I will consider a 1.85x18" alloy for the front after having exhausted myself looking for a 1.60

I want one for less than $100 if possible.My main concern is the spoke pattern match the angle of the hub size on the 75' CB400F.

Do you mean Yamaha ?  please clarify
like a mikesXS front rim for a disc brake XS650? was curious if that would have the same size hub as the CB400F w/ similar spoke angles? only those are 19" and I want an 18" front rim..

I think pretty much any 18x36 rim made for a disc brake front hub will work fine. The angle change would be very slight between the hub flange diameters commonly used. You should only have problems trying to use a drum brake drilled rim on a disk hub (or the reverse).
I would tend to go a size wider though - finding tires (decent tires at least) that are sized for a 1.6" rim is not so easy.

The wheel keeps on turning and you cant slow down, you can't hold on and you can't let go, you can't go back and you can't stand still, if the thunder don't get ya then the lightnin will.

Don,
Were you able to find an alloy 18" for the front of your CB400F ?
