Its an aftermarket set together with the spring. I bought it originally for my VBB but never installed it. Now itll go on the SprintV.
Its stiffer than the originals.

Looks like you're in good hands, and the Vespa is pretty solid after blasting. Always liked the matte steel look after blasting. Good luck!!

Yes, the guy from the shop said it was solid (except for the floor).

On page 4 of this thread, I posted the below question:
DD_VES wrote:
Which seat would you guys put on a Sprint Veloce?
I got a lot of response and almost went for a streamline seat.
But.. I like the looks and the feel of an original seat as well. And more and more..
So.. I decided to blow up my bank account and decided to go for (I hope) a real Aquila seat.

Thoughts?
