is it possible to convert the RadMission Rear rack into rear seat?
Is the rack strong enough to hold a person if I added a cushion and maybe back wheel pegs?
Thoughts?
Thanks :) Im new to all this :)

No, Court's review indicated the RadMission rack is rated to carry just 40lb, and a frame mounted child seat like this would carry only up to 40lb. Better options would include the RadRunner or RadWagon, either of which can carry up to an adult passenger on the rack. The RadRunner 1 requires a bit of work to make it do what you want, because while you get pad, pegs, and wheel guards with the optional passenger kit you really need to buy the fenders as well which are a pain to fit reportedly because you need to remove the rear motor wheel, the Radwagon comes with fenders and guards prefitted

Btw the RadMission1 rack is rated for 25 kg (even though reviews & the rad site say 18kg, the rack says 25 kg) so it's doable (in fact I've been riding w a Yepp on my RadMission1)...but it's not clear if Rad didn't design this bike for pay load in the back of the bike. I hit up Rad support to ask about this.
