A 12 volt system with 14 amp cable could handle 168 watts, that's way more than any headlight bulb you'd fit, so your all good.

I don't think it is an exact answer but a lot of good information on 6v systems can be found when looking at old cars running 6v systems.

Example: https://forums.aaca.org/topic/63045-what-wire-gauge-to-use/

Summary of what I see when looking at this is that #14 wire should hold up to 15amps...
