You might have some luck at: https://www.sram.com/rockshox/products

I am guessing that the item is the picture is the brake bridge, but it would be a whole lot easier to show the parts assembled, and what is broken.

The cheapest solution if you do NOT have shifters and brake levers integrated, is to get a V-brake lever and a V-brake for your front wheel, which doesn't use the hanger/cable stop feature that broke. Including a new brake cable and housing, that will set you back less than $30- for good pieces: Avid SD3 brake, Tektro lever, Jagwire cable and housing.

The problem you run into is that the new forks do not support the use of canti brakes, and thus have no hanger/cable stop feature.
