    That's a Johns Manville speedometer probably from a early twenties Dodge automobile.
    Harley used a similar unit in the late teens and early twenties but the face was white and was labeled "Harley Davidson"
    The Harley version also did not have the max speed arm.
    Looks like the bezel and glass is missing.
    There are a few on eBay that have been for sale for several months. Probably because the sellers have unrealistically high starting bids of a couple hundred dollars. The ones listed for $40-$50 tend to sell.
    The Harley versions are worth a lot. A BEAT head, cable and right angle drive sold on eBay last week for around $1200.

    Just be careful with the pot metal guts inside. Break that and you have problems.
