The lug is quite a common occurrence, I've had mine welded although admittedly I caught it when it was just a fracture.
A good welder should be able to patch / repair the area, plus the added benefits are, no paperwork i.e. change of vehicle particulars; plus you know it's done once and for all.
My welder disconnected the CDI box before welding, although there are some who say it's not necessary I think it's better to be safe than sorry.
Good luck with it. ,
