You'd be better chucking that arrangement,and using two strips of steel about 12mm wide and at least 2mm thick. Run them directly from the bracket on the seat to the outside of the fixing bolt on the suspension.You'll need a longer bolt for the suspension and a spacer (washers) in the middle of the bracket at the so you can bolt it up tight. You might find then that with someone sitting on it, the whole fixing arrangement will work like a parallelogram, and the seat will move forward when you apply the brakes, s0 you'll need two addition strips to triangulate it from the bottom of the suspension to maybe the front bottom corner of the frame. It might be better to use hard aluminium tube rather than steel strip. Bash the ends flat and drill fixing holes like I do for my racks. See here: How to make a rack for battery
