Most likely would have been a sling seat.  That is a cloth and foam seat that ties off to the seat truss and the cross bar at shoulder height.  There are a couple of ties as well at the back/ bottom of the seat to keep it in place.   Kitfox used fiberglass seats, but I think the sling seat is more comfortable, as well as being adjustable.  JImChuk

The early model seats were the brown sling seats with 2” yellow foam. I put conform foam in the pilots side of mine.

Made a huge difference. It’s heavy though which is why I didn’t do the whole seat.
