Default Re: battery

I just finished my first build to the point that its ridable. Going out to buy some accessories this week at one of the Latino Lowrider bike shops here in San Diego. One of the accessories will be a headlight. Started thinking about running the headlight off the white wire but realized its brightness will vary with engine speed unless I hook up a regulator and a battery to keep the light constant.

Being an old Triumph motorcycle rider, I remember the bikes had a zener diode with huge cooling fins that would keep the voltage going to the battery at an even 12 volts. Havent checked into that yet but was wondering...

Are there any electronic engineers here who could post a schematic for an easy build 6v regulator for motorbikes???
