find a junk ignition coil unwrap the wire from it and wrap approximately 320 complete turns of 18 gauge magnet wire around it....... that is only if I remember right on when I tried to bump mine up.

assembled and took a test reading of voltage which was way too high so I would unwind a few wraps which would drop voltage and since you have the same amount of magnetic force surrounding less turns in the wire that would raise amperage until I found a happy medium of as much amperage and voltage I could squeeze out of the limited space. run a voltage regulator so you don't pop bulbs at full throttle.
I used a rectifier since I wanted a batterry to comply with D.O.T. regs and needed a battery but I could never get rid of the "clipping" the strobe like effect of my headlight at low engine speeds I wonder if I left it as alternating current would have prevented that
this was all trial and error with no knowledge of electricity but if I remember right about 320 coils of 18 gauge wire that is it's own coil separate from the ignition coils should power a light. I can't remember what wattage bulbs I used.
The coil in the electrix link is the easiest way to add depending upon the demand you need
