    Coleman 200 Seat Suspension...Installed

    I put this together about a month ago. Works well, especially off road in bumpy areas...Replaced original base with 3/4" plywood, bolted 2 valve springs to it with fender washers and lock nuts on the back side, bent a right angle in a 6" T hinge for the front and added a piece of 1/2" plywood at the rear. The springs are wide enough to bear thru the plywood to the frame. Used original seat mounting holes to bolt to.

    I got bobber springs and they were so stiff that they wouldn't compress, at all. These valve springs have just the right amount of force to compress just a bit when you are stationary.

    That's pretty cool. I like those Coleman 200s. Look like a lot of fun. If I can find one for a good price I may get one.
