Knowing that those haven't been built in many years, I'd first try to source it from antique dealers (not the 'junk shops' that call themselves antique shops) They typically have a decent list of places to get parts for such machines.
If that doesn't pan out and you have the actual broken belt you could do a measure (around the belt the width and the height (and if a 'v' the approx. angle of the 'V") and see if you can have Gates make you one. (this will not be cheap).

The belts are no longer made but if you have a good hardware store (not a big box store) you can get a long "O" ring that will work. The ribbons are pretty common I have them in stock.
