FIGURINES

There are lots of cyling figurines around, they were pretty popular in France, in Spain... I guess they might have been popular in many other places as well. I like them, but I don't exactly collect them.  Here are, nevertheless, some of the ones I have at home. By the way, those shown in the main page are plastic Spanish figurines of the 1960's, made in Barcelona by Mariano Sotorres.
