If you can find a repaclement centre spider, crank, happy days...

Im not sure if I would feel comfortable riding, knowing it has a crack like that in it.

Huge amount of effort to grind out, weld, then remachine the inside and re-chrome. Bin and buy a replacement.

I have one the same (but without the crack ;) ) if you want to replace it. The chrome is not as good as yours and I don't know where the left arm has gone, although I know it's here somewhere....let me know and we'll sort out a price.
