As far as the skins are concerned, they may be OEM, but the paint scheme is not.
They OEM bodywork may have been re-painted, or they may be painted aftermarket bodywork. The photos don't have enough detail to be sure.

Is it just the orange on the seat pan? I think that the black may be painted over orange, just leaving a thin strip of black at the rear edge and the black stripe down the tail. Are there other areas that are incorrect for an '03?

Someone outlined the feathers in gold or yellow, and the rear cowl has been painted differently.

Here's some photos of an '03 RC51 showing a side view and one from the rear.

Either way, its a nice touch. I have seen the RC51 on the tail like that before. My F4 and R1 I put reflective tape accents on to make me more visible at night.
