What type of electric motor-generator and LED for this progect? Answered

I want to build a tiny bike mounted wind turbine to power a white super LED light. What type of electric motor-generator would you recommend and what kind of LED? Would it require any other things like a heat sink?

Off topic extra info:
I'm thinking of running it directly off the windmill or maybe sending the output of the windmill to a rechargeable battery and running it off that.

I only understand basic electronics, so please dumb down the responses :P

Thanks in advance.

Run it off the drive-train, not a wind-turbine.
