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.

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