You do need a voltage regulator in order not to overcharge the batteries, but it is not necessary to reduce the speed. If the speed gets so high that physical damage could result, then you need to reduce the pitch of the blades. Rotatable blades with flyweights would be self regulating for speed. An automotive regulator should work to regulate the voltage if the field current requirements of the generator are around 2- 3 amps.
