Default Headlight question

Already installed 12v, 7ah, SLA battery. Currently using portion of Porter Cable flashight.
Question: does a utility light throw a poor light pattern for use as headlight?
Don't want to blind traffic with a flood light while they try to kill me. Walmart has a utility style 4 1/2" heavy plastic model that's only $13. A chrome 4 1/2" headlight can be found online for $40+. A small chrome Optronics driving light would work, but a larger light would look cool on my Point Beach commuter.

The number one danger I've encountered is a driver giving a glance, seeing a bicycle, and not realizing I'm moving at 15-20mph.
