Here are some (overdue) pics of some of the bikes (alt or otherwise) incorporated into the 2005 Coney Island Mermaid Parade. If you aren't familiar with it, or you are in NYC and have never checked it out personally, I highly recommend it. I have also thrown in a couple of the better costumes I saw. I have some more pics of bikes in the Pride parade (which took place the next day), but I dropped my camera on the train and can't extract them. Enjoy!
