Fake Ibanez Roadster II Series?


My father has recently picked up this "old" Ibanez Roadster II Series from a friend and I'm not sure about its authenticity. The serial number on the AANJ is 'F842112' and it has the tiger stripe like blue and black colour pattern on the body.

I havent found anything online at all that that resembles it.
Any help would be great.

Sorry for the bad pics, my dad isn't great with phones

Looks legit to me. RS320. Maybe the MS finish?

Right on... Looks like it in the 1985 catalog:

Ibanez 1985

Looks extremely legit, and not sure why anyone would fake one of those either.
