Hi Dave, If it's too close to the hole to weld the part back on then it will probably be best to cut it off a little further away on the frame and make a piece out of alluminum stock. Any local professional welder should be able to put it on -needs a TIG welder for this job. I would make a rough shape first, weld it on, drill hole and tap threads for derailleur, then file to exact shape. Not sure what the Alan dropout looks like so you might be able to modify it to take a replacement type hanger also.

Stay warm, Derek Willburn Long Beach, CA
