Cant think of where I saw them but try model railway trackside items, G guage is pretty near I think.  For cycles try French sites, "Tour de France" etc .

This is expensive but a superb model:

I got one from an American eBay seller a bit cheaper.


Tamiya also do one a lot cheaper but the spokes are way out of scale so it depends on how much you want it to be realistic.

Try Your Your Local Toy Shop...My son has a 1:32scale Dustbin Lorry with several Wheelie Bins with it...
Also look in your local Sweet Shop...I have seen  a Plastic Wheelie Bin full of Sweets...Sounds Strange But True...
