Canvas shops have the equip to bend ss piping. You may check there for comparative pricing to an ss fabricator. Something tells me the canvas shop would be less expensive, since they deal with piping every day, but don't know that.

From the looks of the pic, however, I don't really see much advantage to do this. Unless you bump out the pushpit, you're just elevating the passenger a few inches above the current cockpit seat. Will the boom come into play? I think fabricating good cushions and backrests is the way to go. JMO.
