Schwinn Stingray-type handlebars for a child stoker?

Hmm... anybody think about using something like this?

angled back at a pretty strong angle, to reach back to a kid stoker?

I'm kind of the odd man out in that I'm using kids' bike handlebars for my current kid stoker setup. I *was* using the bars off of his 16" bike, but then he couldn't ride his bike.

So I switched on some off a girls' 12" bike; they are a little narrower (good) and have a little less rise (not good). When he stands on the pedals, he has occasionally hits his knee on the seatpost that I'm using to set back the bars. I wonder if I had Stingray bars if I could skip the seatpost altogether and just mount them in the regular stoker stem..?
