Proper fix would be to weld the holes shut and re-drill, but I suspect that is not an option because most of us do not have the skill or tools to do so and damaging the fork finish will add to the problem of getting it fixed totally......Uhmmmm.......I'd just try to find a replacement fork, hopefully from the same model bike or very similar.

Just had a thought,.......... if the rear nut on the brake bolt is not recessed, maybe drilling the hole bigger towards the correct direction will make things realign, but with a recessed brake nut instead?? It will not work if the problem is with the front hole or both holes though.
