Most Cyclocross shops and internet sites sell them, like this one:

http://cyclocrossworld.stores.yahoo.net ... ulley.html

http://cyclocrossworld.stores.yahoo.net/cxwpulley.html

They are still standard equipement on cx bikes, which makes it odd that they make sooo much money on ebay when most of the guys are just selling $10 modern ones!
