The only red rear shocks available will be a set of secondhand ones.The ones that have no damping,giving that famous ( infamous really ) pogo stick type ride.Infact I have a 6v set sitting in my garage .
Do yourself a favour and get a modern set that damp and spray them red yourself,that's what I did.Its the best single improvement you can do to a 90
Check out availability in recommended suppliers.

I got a pair on e-bay and, surprisingly, they're very good, far better than the worn out originals. The seller I got mine from are out of stock now, but a minutes sleuthing found these, and these are less than I paid too!

Well they didn't directly fit my 1971 C90, the top bushes were smaller internal diameter, bur pushing the steel sleeves out enlarged the holes from 10mm to 12mm so they did fit then. My early bike has 10mm bottom and 12mm top fittings for the rear shocks. I don't know what the later ones have..... The actual length and the top and bottom eyes are identical on both so I would guess that a simple bush change would be the worse case scenario

Worth pointing out that the original shocks do not have steel sleeves in the bushes top or bottom!
