It's an old pillion seat - might be British but I can't recall. There is a leather cover but I'll do something different to make it comfortable while keeping the mechanics exposed. It does have a spring suspension built in.
Vintage vibe. The inspiration all along has been the 1950 Triumph Thunderbird. I'm hoping the bike ends up looking somewhat like a factory bike, but clearly not. Simple fender stays, exposed wiring, simple paint.
I like the idea of a tank under the seat. The frame would look great with a 40s-50s look bicycle tank on it. Something to follow the lines of the frame! You could still make it a split style for a more antique look. Maybe something along the lines of Jesse Rooke's bikes.
