Usually they are the VEC type ( Villiers engineering co) although actually made by Lucas, a similar one was made by Miller, i put "VEC autocycle headlamp" into Ebay, there are 2 on there , but both are Miller ( and overpriced !)

As JH says, all FB Powerbike were fitted with the VEC headlamp. They do appear on eBay, but be aware that good examples are expensive, sadly they are often damaged by corrosion from the dry cell battery that was required for standby by lighting. Keep looking.
