You're not talking about the "Diamond" Headlight by Acerbis are you?

I think I may have seen another one in a mag that looked as if it were actually made from R1 parts, but have no idea how / where to find it...

My bad I didn't mean to go off like that... But I was just wondering what you think is good looking?

P.S. I bought mine because it worked very well on my buddies bike and I need excellent night lighting. The looks were really secondary for me... But alot of people shoot me compliments on it so alot of people must like them!!

Well, Dbleon's light may be different, but the cyclops is DOT with glass lenses and a lot brighter than the 35W bulbs found in most of the cool looking setups. Although you can upgrade these to brighter bulbs at the supposed risk of melting the plastic.
Good job on disarming the animosity. One of the coolest applications I have seen is to buy two headlamps and a windscreen for a buell. Graft them on the front of your bike. Although this is mostly a supermoto/ street application. The site I was going to reference is in the middle of changing servers but here is quick chop I did in Photoshop. You get the idea.

I forget where I saw it, but you might be talking about the set up they are using for the Dakar race.

I may be way in left field on this but i've seen something like what you've described on ebay. it has 4x20 watt light bulb's in a V formation. i think if you type in enduro headlight, or enduro fairing on ebay you should find it. They souldn't be more then $100. hope this helps if not, good luck.
