Comparing Triangle Headlights - Three Versions 

(Lifted from the Nostalgia on Wheels Blog)

As you can see, there are three versions of a triangle headlight here. The leftmost one the 70s no-name, the middle is the AEE version, and the rightmost is the Aris model. Note that the wrinked metal corners appear on the no-name and only slightly on the AEE version, whereas the Aris model has a nice flow to it. Also, as you can see, only the Aris has the logo marked on the glass lens.

On this profile shot the no-name is first, the Aris is second, and the AEE is third. Both the Aris and AEE are notably more slender than the no-name. However, the AEE is the only model to be sandwiched with blue plastic, which I'm sure looks killer while riding at night!

From the back is the no-name at left, the AEE center, and the Aris at right. Note how the Aris and AEE headlights have a more angled back whereas the no-name looks very square.
