I haven't ridden a banana seat since I was a kid. I loved that bike.
I remember they usually used to break between the seat post and the back bars if you put too much force into the seat. But the materials used have changed a lot, so they may be sturdier these days.
Apologies for hijacking your thread for a minute...

You can find something like this:
Or maybe this:
at Custom Motored Bicycles - BICYCLE PARTS SEATS
. Scroll down about a third to half-way down the page. They have some nice looking stuff, haven't placed any orders from them though.
Now, back the banana seat discussion.
