kawi 1979 kz400-h

I am in a spot of trouble. I bought a 1979 Kawasaki KZ400-h model bike. And I have ordered a seat cover for it. After taking the seat off and doing an inspection I note that the seat pan is made of stamped steel and is rusted through in so many areas it is a write off. I am now looking for a replacement seat pan that will hopefully fit on the KZ400 1979 model that has a plastic seat pan instead of the steel one. Since some of you might have done work on such a beast, I might ask if you might be able to help with this information. Alternativly I might go with a solo seat. If a solo seat is chosen can you also suggest what kind of rear fender arrangment I can use? I would prefer to let the rear fender follow the tire rather than the frame.

If the bike was mine (and I wish it was!) I would keep it as original as possible. You can easily find a good used seat base online.
