I uses a piece of angle steel from Lowes. Did some trimming and some drilling and mounted across between the two top mounting points for the headreasts.
Attached to this crossbar are a couple of Rhode Gear Pro, Truck Shuttle Bike Mounts that I got off of EBay for about $10 each.

The headrests will still go up and down with the cross bar in place, but I would have to unscrew the Bike Mount.

On the Crosspost you can see another hole in the middle for a third Bike Mount, but I'm pretty sure that would be too close together for the bike handlebars.

Very clean! Have you considered making a few of these for profit?

If only one mount was installed between the headrest, would that cause any interference?

With just one in the middle I think both headrests would work normally, but a jump seat passenger may knock their noggin' if the trail gets bumpy.

The nice thing about these Rhode Gear mounts is that they can be removed by unscrewing the large yellow knob.
