Don't know if that's original Suzuki race stuff. From the inside photos it looks like the fiberglass is a 100% mat construction (no "cloth" - woven material). Most of the Japanese factory stuff I have seen has a nice cloth finish.
Nice bike all the same!

It's not factory stuff...

Suzuki used both mat and cloth in that era but the dead giveaway is the poor quality of the edges and the joints, the way the edges are finished, the differences in mounting points, etc.
