If they are authentic arcade controls then 5 minutes with a screwdriver and some cleaning products and they'll be as good as new.

Two minutes with wire trimmers and 0.50p for some new spade connectors and you're done. Assuming everything is compatible. I'm sure you asked the guy selling the ps2 cable if it worked with the virtua striker (1994) controls? I'm pretty sure it will they will be standard digital joystick & buttons.

It won't be. They are hardy things. If it worked when you got it then it will work.
