Ummm, that's NOT a hairpin spring, that's a friction shock absorber. The spring is contained in the upper rear frame member (capped with an aluminium tube) and pulled by a bell-crank attached to the swinging arm. There are, however, hairpin springs closing the valves on a lot of Italian bikes of this period.
