Default are these original fairings?

hi guys, I'm a new member here and looking to buy a F4i soon.. I'm going to take a look at this one tomorrow but I'm not sure if the fairings are original. He says it was laid down once and that's why the signal light and front fender are damaged. What do you guys think? It's also been sitting in a garage for 2 years, hence the dust.

yes, but not sure on the all black one. hard to tell from the pics. Since its all black i'll assume it was a replacement.

Like Pittsm said, my guess is all the Silver and black fairings are OEM execpt for the all black left side fairing. I bet that one is aftermarket.

it could be OEM, no? If you remove teh silver tape stripe from the side fairing of an OEM fairing, it will be all black.. or at least Im pretty sure...

yeah, i never said it wasn't oem. I just said, it had been replaced. Could have been replaced with oem or with aftermarket. Hard to tell from the pics.

yeah I think your correct on the fact that if you remove the silver tape it would be all black. I just don't know why they would remove the silver tape and only one one side. I know I wouldn't

Yeah but if it was me scrapped up tape looks better than a all black fairing that looks out of place. But then again that is just me.
