Default Any of you know how a motorcycle seat is made?

I know, sounds really random and yet too specific. I'm in the process of making a 1:18th motorcycle look like it has been burned and I need to know if the seat cushions have any sort of underlying structure and what it's made of...i.e., is it something that would burn? What other components would burn or melt away? Yes, I know plastic would, but is there anything else that might not be known to someone unfamiliar with motorcycles?

Foam over a plastic form, generally with varying degrees of metal components. Custom seats might be foam over a metal seat pan It's not inconceivable that a hot enough blaze would render the entirety of the seat an unrecognizable mass.

Dio debris?

Edit to add:
Make and model will definitely make a difference as to seat construction.

Depends on the bike and the year, in the 80’s they still had steel seat pans on imports from Japan, Harley’s mid 90’s, they all have plastic pans now, fire from bikes fuel would burn most of seat if not all, fire in a building or say wildfire would burn everything, my bike burned in garage fire and melted the rims, engine and all aluminum,plastic,tires and bodywork, nothing left but steel parts, bearings, frame copper wiring, piston rings,gears etc. didn’t have cellphone cameras back then or I’d have pics of it. Google motorcycle fires to get some ideas.

I don't know the model or year, it's just a random motorcycle I found at the dollar store. It *sorta* looks like Capt. Americas bike from Easy Rider, except it doesn't have the tall back support.

K, yes, this is going to be a piece of dio debris.
