"tape" pinstripes!?

Now that I have the paint done I'm thinking about pinstripes. I've decided to do gold pinstripes.

It just so happens I know a guy that has an original unmolested 1974 R90S which he bought new (original owner) back in the day. So I ask my friend if I can take some pictures and measurements of the pinstripe on his bike. He says yes, but tells me that his bike is an early production bike and at that time BMW was putting "tape" pinstripes on instead of painted pinstripes. "TAPE", on a BMW, never hard of such a thing. Strange.

You can see where the tape overlaps in the photo below.
