Color of tail light blinkers?

I have a 1975 450 SE US-version with yellow/orange front and tail blinkers.

Does that mean my blinkers are in fact EURO-version ... since US-tail light blinkers are red? Is that correct?

Background: I need to find a new/used right tail light lens ... and I need one with yellow blinker.

You can certainly find a few on eBay both in the UK and in the EU.

Hi Robert,

thanks again for your offer!

here are three pics of the rear right tail lens ... with orange blinker.

Also, please see the number engraved in the lens (SAE STIAR P 2 A 73). Probably a standard and/or certificate of some sort?

Please send me a PM if you have one and want to sell.

Cheers

Pm me your email, will send photos.


Have a nice one. Prob best to include metal frame as gasket is in good shape and attached to everything.
