bulb conversion question

I currently use a 6v 4.5ah sealed rechargeable lead acid battery to power the lights on my bike.
I would like to convert the headlight from a 6v incadescent bulb to a led bulb. The light is a vintage style chrome bullet light with a screw base. I know I will have to sacrifice the base in order to fit the new led bulb if it's possible.
Any ideas on what kind of bulb I can use and what voltage will work with this battery. Can I use the same reflector, or will the new bulb have its own reflector?
I want to keep using this battery because it powers other lights and it's easily carried in my small trunk bag on my rear carrier.
Thanks,
Bob

P.S.
This light is used to be seen, not to light the road. So throw and spread aren't that important.
