For some reason, the only thing that comes to mind
is Star Wars themed. Like an X Wing Fighter, or one of those land speeder cycles when they were in the forest with the Ewoks. Not patriotic or Political really, but it could be fun.
Or you could always tie a bunch to toy cars to the back like you go married.
The sign could read "Just divorced.....from my car". OK, that's enough with the cheesy ideas for now. Gnite all.
I remain Drew.

Sounds like fun, I just read today's Yehuda Moon strip, and the "Free Range Vehicle" slogan seems to be appropriate if you want a sign / slogan.

Of course, it is a _cargo_ bike, so you might consider "dressing it up" with some cargo. Like dog food, kitty litter, case(s) of beer, landscaping equipment, beach umbrella+folding chairs+beach buckets and shovels+picnic basket+cooler, kids in soccer uniforms, <insert your favorite cargo here>. From personal experience, I'd advise leaving the longer cargo like kayaks and ladders at home, since turning space and front/rear clearance is always at a premium on parade day.
Have a blast and send pictures
