    Just replace the complete rear derailleur, including the mounting hanger that is bolted onto your rear dropout. Needs to be properly installed and adjusted. Don't ask how here - either check the Park tool site, Sheldon Brown's site, ask a friend or have a bike shop do it.

    What you broke is the rear derailleur and, no, you can't epoxy it back together, it must be replaced. Go to any bike shop for a new one and have them install it or find someone who knows how to work on bikes to help.

    If you did an endo and that's the worst of it, then you're lucky. (Broken wrist, head, shoulder, face, etc.)

    Any derailuer should work. A cheapy is around $25.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    No, it really won't.

    You need specifically a "Shimano Tourney rear derailleur with hanger". $25.00 would be on the high side for that derailleur. $15.00 would be more typical. Installation is about a $25.00 job but may run a bit more if it's necessary to replace anything else (like the shift cable and housing).

    There is another, if somewhat more expensive, option. The OP could get a $5 "claw adapter" like this:

    which would then let him use any standard bolt-on rear derailleur.

    Yes, it will work, sort of. It's a very low quality derailleur but it will function, assuming it's in working condition. The picture doesn't fill me with confidence.

    I was assuming that the existing claw was in good shape (probably a bad assumption) and any derailuer could be bolted onto it.

    The pictures are poor but it appears that the original derailleur was rivited to the claw and the claw does not have a standard M10x1.0 threaded mounting hole.
