I've been surfing parts and designing a modified floating pan in my head and scrap paper all day. It could use the factory mounted seat plank as the frame & rigid mount. On top of it you could place a hinged universal style mount that would drill into place on the seat bar, the factory seat will then be attached to the hinged bar . On the underside I plan for a Y or T style bracket to be attached to the factory bracket as well for holding the mounts for the springs . Just some flat truss style screws and holes through the bottom of the factory seat pan and then the 2" barrel springs will be holding up the seat on the hinge bracket with some extra cushiony clearance. I'll make sure to get a build up for it when or if it ever happens , wouldn't take too much time and parts would only be about 50$ .
With no frame or swing arm mounting needed ride geometry and ergonomics of the rider would be retained in the place it was designed without stressing or shifting of weight to other areas of the frame.
