These charming Zinc Cast miniature little cyclists were first created in the 1950s in France by a small family run company Fonderie Roger. They started as parts to a cycling game but demand for the model cyclists quickly outstripped that of the game.
Today, they are just as popular and incredibly collectible. The standard ones are hand painted in France. The special edition ones and personalised ones are hand painted by artists in the UK.
If you order a standard one you will receive a randomly selected colour (which is how they are supplied to us). You can express a preferred colour in the order notes and we will try to meet your demand but no promises!
The special edition ones can be backordered if we are out of stock. They take 1-2 weeks to be made. The same applies to the personalised versions…
If you want a custom / personalised miniature cyclist then after checkout simply contact us and let us know your requirements. You can specify the colour of the jersey shorts and hat. We can do small words and numbers (max 5 digits/characters). An example image of the jersey you want replicated is very handy.
No two models are the same due to the nature of manufacturing and painting so each one has its own character and Euro charm.
Approximate size is 5x5x2 cm
Standard cyclists and sets of 4 come pre-packaged – see product photograph.
Special Little Cyclist designs and personalised models are presented in a black Little Cyclist box.
Manufactured in France, hand painted in the UK
