Run it. Check it. Run it. Check it. That's the drill.
You have cause to be anxious. You came through the mishap OK, but it could ahve been much, much worse.
Good call on the "beta of the seat". You are getting the best idea of what you like and need done. On my solo seat, I modified an old Mustang dual seat to solo and rode it for a few months. By the time I sent it off to BillMayer for a rebuild, I knew exactly what I wanted and relayed that info to the seatbuilder. I sit on that seat and it virtually disappears.
Fret not. It took me decades to get imy bike close to the way I want it:
'73 R60/5 Toaster
