Bingo, don't throw that cracked fork out. I have always said a crack is just an opportunity for inlay.
Inlay something in that crack, which will stabilize that fork, and will look great to boot...many mediums for inlay abound.

Try crushed Turquoise, malachite, mother of Pearl, Abalone shell, colored sand, etc.....using water thin viscosity CA glue. Pack the crack with inlay of choice till slightly proud of the surface, then drip the CA glue onto it, letting it wick down through the inlay until it fills with the glue. Spray with CA accelerator to speed dry it, use a Dremel and the small sanding drum mandrel to sand the bulk down, then finish by hand sanding to desired / highest grit you want, then apply finish of choice.

No Dremel, that's okay too.....can also use a file, just have to clean the teeth often, but it'll work
