I don't think I would bother trying to fix it. You are probably better off buying a used seat, unless of course you want it padded. Then you can get it from OEM, Steiner, Chown Tractor Parts or a few other places. Also, if you have access to another pan seat cheaply, you can open up the crimp and have it redone as well.

Or do like me and go the cheap way. Get a cushion that slips over it with an drawstring. They are available at most farm supply stores.

When I built the tricycle I didn't have any seats except for two badly rusted out ones. They were full of holes and looked like doilies. I decided to try a repair with fiberglass thinking I could cover them with the tie on cushions. It worked fine and I still don't have the cushions I got from J.P.'s on yet. They look fine as is.
It won't cost you very much to try it.

I thought about covering it up with a seat cover, but I love a challenge of trying to restore something back to its original condition (or close to it). I've read some very interesting and talented repair jobs on this board, and I was hoping someone did a seat crimping job. The seat has a sharp edge where the crimping is gone and may cut the seat cushion. I may take you advice Mr. Willer, and try to give a fiberglass edge to the seat. If it comes out OK, I'll try to post a picture. Thanks for the help!
If you want to give that a try, I would suggest you start with a piece of heavy gage wire to form the edge of the seat. Some sheet metal may help fill in any gap from the remaining seat to the wire. Then use fiberglass to complete the repair.
