I think the Tanaka bike bug might be the same?

you could try:

Link...... Bike Bug

Drive Wheel $28.00 The Drive Wheel is another item that has been improved on design. The rubber of the drive hub simply deteriorates with age and wear. We have put a neoprene high-speed roller skate wheel (62 mm) over the aluminum drive hub. It wears less, vibrates the engines less and bike goes slightly faster per revolution.

hi; you can bore out a rubber or synthetic skate board tire, usually free at a shop. get a couple and use a hole saw a bit smaller than the drive wheel, heat the tire in boiling water apply stickum to wheel and slide tire on. mitch
