I think it's pretty cool looking so far. I too am leaning towards the round headlight persuasion, but i think what you've made is a cool improvement over stock. Keep up the creative work...

I think you're definitely on the right track with the cheaper mindset.
The depressions in the sides are a feature of the XS version and came about for two reasons, first, it's where the indicators mount and second, the whole thing took on a very 'bulbous', 'fat' look when I tried to make them less dramatic. No function other than that.

Actually, re looking at the pictures and then looking at the bike, I don't think the pics are doing it any favours !! It looks much better for real and the 'filler' finish doesn't help either.
