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.

...Hi Guys...

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...
