    That bike definitely still has some life left in it, assuming the frame is ok.

    I recommend looking at Nashbar, Performance Bike and JensonUSA for parts.

    JensonUSA has the best deals on replacement 7/8 speed shifters.

    In case those Alivio shifters/levers don't work well at first, spray some WD40 or Penetrating oil into them with the red straw attachment. I've restored a few shifters that way.
