Wild guess..... looks like an "off the shelf" die-cast aluminium box. Maybe just being used to house a connector block ????

Ha laughing at pikey Dave. They seem to go up the a frame to the lights. So a connector block could be a good shout. When the seller said the electrics needed a little look he wasn't far wrong. It looks like the wiring in a Vietnamese cannabis factory.

My quicksilver 500 was like that it only need some carbonara sauce for a good meal terminal box
