Even if you can do this, LEDs aren't good enough for a long throw of the beam, as Dadu says here. I mean, it will not improve your headlight in any way. If you want to do this just for the heck of it, I would suggest do a fog lamp kind of thing. Don't replace your head lamp with LED, for God's sake.

LEDs light beam can be focused to much as normal light beam. only thing is that the number of LEDs have to be calculated according to the lms they produce and what power consumption your looking at .
I have seen a 35 watt LED lamp with throw of 180 ft.

Default Re: Experiment! Replacing conventional headlights bulbs with LEDS!

led saves power and also their response time is very fast ie. the moment you apply the brake the light switches on. that's the prime reason why they were used in tail lamp setup.
they generate a lot of glare to oncoming vehicles unless you diffuse it with proper lenses it is not advisable to use them.
I am using in my cycle with a luxeon 1 watt LED with lens strapped with velcro it gives good light
