If laget av metall is not accepted how would you then translate for example - made in china, or made in USA...

Sykkelen er av metall would be the short and simple way to translate the given English sentence. That said, Sykkelen er laget av metall is a totally normal sentence.

Made in would not be the same thing, "Made in" on labels would be "Produsert i ....", I guess (often just the name of the material used is translated into Norwegian).
