Default Motorcycle Speedometer and Headlight?

Hi, I have a barn find I'd like to find some info on. It looks like it's from a motorcycle, but my google search came up empty. No markings or nunbers that I can see.

Speedo is marked in MPH, so that might help narrow it down. May be European, but probably sold in USA.

MPH will be UK, USA and a few other countries. Europe has been Kph for many decades. Is there a makers name either on the front dial or stamped into the casing. This would give an idea on the country of origin.
