Default Re: Soft springs on new seat

Here's a pic of the valve springs used on a saddle I built. The 3/8" cold rolled round stock is attached to the drop-outs then up through the seat frame. The frame rests on top of the springs and under the springs is a shaft collar that can be raised or lowered to alter ride.

You asked where I get my springs; Ha ha...out of my boxes of old hot rod junk. You might check a place that rebuilds automobile engines. They throw them in the trash. Or, you can buy news ones from parts stores.
