Here are the pics of the seat frame I welded as a newbie 2 years ago. It doesn't look too warped, but believe me, it is. It was welded with a cheapo stick welder using 5/64" 6013 rod. I tried to stand on it to bend it to the correct shape, but it wouldn't budge. I weigh about 250 lbs.

The current Streetfox from the rear - The seat frame was made from 1" EMT using a cheapo flux core welder.
