cut the remains even, run a tap thru it, and screw in a pipethread fitting with a little epoxy.
i had to do that at the dragstrip with one of my cars years ago, and it held up for as long as i owned the car... looked like ass, but it worked.

id reccomend finding a nice looking piece.. maybe just cut pipe threads on the outside of a brake line tube.. done right, it'll look almost stock...

how broken? I've used JB Weld to patch up holes, I don't know that it would be strong enough to support an entire piece though...
