I don't know much about speedos but my 55 FLH ( very late production ) has red needle, and red and black last digit odometer.
Bike was one owner from 57 till last year, shows 19844 miles original.
The "Harley in the Barn" book ( Tom Cotter), shows a 57 FLH TWO HUNDRED AND EIGHTY EIGHT miles, ( great story of why ), and the
speedo has " Black on white" last digit .
I firmly believe they just used what was at hand within limits.
I have noticed this pattern on a lot of American toys I have tinkered with over the years, cars to jukeboxes.
