GS spring in frame

Hello guys,
Looking around my new, to me, 1985 80G/S I found a big light spring inside the frame top tube under the tank??
Any idea for what it is?
Thanks!

... finally something that I can answer.

that is to keep tension on your tire air pump that is stored in the backbone of the frame.

The hand pump, like a bicycle one that goes in the frame. Still available through the dealers, or was a few years ago
