Petit Cyclist - handmade miniature cycling figures

Cycle1
It seems only right that we feature the Petit Cyclist during the Tour de France. Although these will look good as display items long after the race is over.

The mini cyclists are produced in small batches by a family run foundry in France, with the same location and production methods used since the 1950s. Each one is die-cast in zamak (a zinc alloy) before being hand-painted. The latter obviously guarantees that no two figures are the same.

Various kits available to buy, with each one sold in an equally cool gift box.

If you want one (or more), TwentyTwentyOne is selling them for £9 each.
