Rebuild old seat?

Looking for a little advice on how to rebuild the seat on my '78 Yamaha IT250 rider. Metal pan is OK, but foam is absolutely petrified, fabric is actually an old cordura backpack stretched around the pan(has functioned OK for about 8 years!).

Not looking for authenticity or beauty, but function. No luck at the junk yards. Can I carve up some sofa cushion foam and recover it, or is that too soft/otherwise unsuitable? How do you resurrect an old seat?
