Q: Did R90S have stripes on rear fender?

I have question regarding BMW R90S. Did it have red stripes on rear fender from factory? Bike is from beginning of 1976 and is in orange, built for European market.

With greetings from Estonia,
Tarmo

I have some original BMW picts and the orange R90S picts I have do not have a stripe on the back. Single on the front fender, seat cowl and fairing...

I have lots of BMW ads from magazines in full color of R90S's. None have the rear fender striped.
