Visit the local recyling shed and see if anyone has dropped off a
treadmill - or look for a used treadmill, or buy a surplus treadmill
motor. All of these that I have personally seen are permanent magnet
motors, which thus work fine as permanent magnet DC generators...
Or, buy a brand-new non-surplus PM DC motor - costs more, but you can
pick your specs as well.

I don't know if this is within your capability, but it is
possible to build your own. You can find plans on this site.
