Default Bow repair possible?

So I found a bow resting on a curb walking from work one day last week, and after some research I discovered it's an allen brand compound from the 1972 to 1974 production. The problem is, it's got quite a few repairs that need to be made to it. As far as I can tell it needs a new cable and a large draw wheel (I believe that's what it's called? I'm not well versed in the intricate parts of compound bows as of yet). Would anyone happen to know where I can find the parts to fix it online?

odds are the costs of finding parts and the age of the bow, it would be a waste of money to restore, unless you had some sentimental value to it that would be worth it to YOU< and NO one else!

best advice is put it back in the trash where you found it!

limbs could be bad, or other parts, that will be safety issue's
or there just about to fail from age alone making it dangerous to shoot,
its not worth fixing or risking shooting it! IMO

Yep. Craigslist is full of old bows that still shoot good for under a hundred bucks if you're just looking for something to shoot.
