    Yeah I have a couple of them. One like yours, is an odometer that hands on the fork. The other is a Cyclotronic. As I recall it works off of power generated when the front wheel turns. It's the real deal, distance, speed and so on. I got it on a 1983 Nishiki I picked up from the original owner.
