Solo bobber seat

Hi, new here but hoping I can get some help. I bought an 89 VN750 for $250
disassembled but in decent shape. Trying to build a bobber out of it, and it's going well so far. But does anyone here know where I could get a springer seat kit for around $150, trying to keep to a budget on the build. If anyone can help, I thank you.

Build one!

You can get a pan off ebay for around $40, a gel pad for $25, springs for $30 and Joanne's or any other hobby fabric store has Vinyal for around $10 a yard.

$105 and you have your seat man.

Thanks for the advice, found a setup with scissor springs for a little more than my target price, so I should be all set.
