New Headlight

Just searching for a new headlight, something a little different, and i came across these.

i haven't seen anything like it on any bikes in the gallery here, is that because they will look crap!?

i would value some opinions thanks

On a postive note, the stock VRSCR inverted beefy triple tree forks look great. Should've left headlight stock.

You know it's terrible when the fact it's a Street Rod isn't even in the top 7 things wrong with it.

You forgot the polished swing arm. His "custom" bent handlebars. Also ONLY the front wheel is cast, the rear is chrome. Has to be one of the ugliest bikes I have ever seen on here... makes a F look appealing.

What about these billet types. Ive only seen them in pics not on a v rod in real life. Now this i think looks good?

Need to be sure because it costs me a lot to have stuff shipped here. Look good on an A model?

I think Kurt has that on his bike, it's not a bad look,mi love the OEM headlamp on the Vrod, I notice a lot of custom builders use it in their projects too.
