I cracked my bicycle front fork on the steering tube, is it worth saving/fixing? And if so how? Welding? Answered

Bicycle front fork cracked on the steering tube from overtightenting. Its just a plain old fork that is all steel with no shock and not bicycle specific, I just use on my daily rider.

Should I get it welded? Brazed?

Yes, a photo would help. Try your local scrap yard. most of the bikes get sold back at my local recyclers. Parts are CHEAP!!!!

So the fork is cracked where it passes through the front tube? How big are the cracks, what direction are they running? A picture would really help.

You said it's a generic fork so you could probably find a replacement easily and cheaply.
