I used an LM317T with a 50 ohm resistor to limit current. Will post the full comment as an 'answer' only because there is more room to type. I consider your answer the correct one though.

Thanks. I'm looking into using a LM317T circuit to bring the power down to what the existing LED's use. The rear light assembly works, the LED's are okay. It's the regulator circuit that appears burnt-out.

i think the 12v cell was an attempt to overcome corrosion at connectors (deans connectors) and the poor behaviour of typical bike wire over time... although I had already upgraded most if not all the wiring to silicon... so I was probably thinking too much when I got the cell. :P
