Suzuki K10P - Seat

In preparation of receiving my new seat cover, I tore apart the old seat to get it cleaned up and ready.  This seat is different compared to all the other little bikes I have.  Instead of a carved and sculpted chunk of foam glued to a seat pan, this sucker uses a series of horizontal expansion springs, and two large coil springs for cushioning.  The entire thing gets capped by a thin rubber pad, and a foam topper, about 1/2" to 1"thick.  Then the entire thing is wrapped in vinyl and held on with a  dozen fat clips.

The old seat, just a bit dusty and crusty with a few rips

Instead of a hunk of foam, this seat uses long springs and two coil springs
