Battery for '45 WD Enfield?

Does anyone know a good replacement 6 volt battery for a '45 WD Enfield?  It would be easiest if it were in the US.  Thanks,  Bill

Best bet is to measure what will fit then put 6volt motorcycle battery in google. I'm sure you'll find something to fit.   ERC

I hollowed out the original battery and bought two small 6V gel cells at Home Depot (alarm system batteries) and put them inside wired in parallel .  Seems to work fine.
