The linkage was ready to receive the seat pan, so I needed to add a a hinge to my seat. I got a long piece of 1/4" x 1" steel, I was going for strength. I remember that the WCC seats had a double pan. My seat pan is pretty stout 10 gauge, and I got two because they were $29. I think doubling them was going to be way overkill, but I still wanted to add strength. So I came up with the idea of making the seat hinge run all the way up the seat pan like a back-bone.
I tacked the steel to flat front of the seat pan with 6 inches off the front for the seat hinge. I had to do it it twice, I didn't get it straight the first time. Then I put it in the vice to bend the steel back-bone around the seat pan. Here is Adam giving me a hand with the torch, heating and bending...
