All you need are round seat struts, not the flat ones, a large dead blow hammer and a block of wood. Mark your seat strut where you want the bend, put one end of the seat strut on the block of wood and the other end the pavement. You will need to hold the seat strut with your foot or put a crescent wrench on the flat end to prevent from twisting when you hit the strut. Then hit (hard) your mark on the seat strut with the dead blow hammer. You will see it start bending. Keep hitting until you get the bend you want. You will get a nice bend without any kinks.
