Broken fork off frame 90's Specialized Allez carbon aluminum

Does anybody know if there is a way to fix a broken frame/fork of a 90's Specialized with aluminum lugs and carbon frame?

Probably not, but a fork can be replaced. What is broken about it?

Is the fork aluminum, steel or carbon fiber?

As @unterhausen mentions, a description of the actual fault would be required for a possible remedy, but people tend to have less tolerance for parts that if they fail, can cause catastrophic accidents.

Also, keep in mind, I doubt any of the big carbon repair companies like Calfee will touch a fork.

That probably should tell you something.

Of course, I could be wrong. You could contact them.

You can replace the fork quite easily with something off the shelf (given similar specs). The frame, however, is deemed beyond intended life according to the Big S and I seriously doubt anyone will touch it. In fact, Specialized has (rumor) advised their "Epic" carbon frameset be retired from service immediately. The frame failures I'm aware of have to do with the carbon tubing coming loose from the aluminum lugs.

it is a carbon tubing which came off of the aluminum lugs to the fork joint after a crash.
It is a Epic Allez probably 1994 or 1995 with Shimano 600.
I tried to attach a photo but was not able to download it.

It seems there is no way to fix it and keep it safe I guess.

Thanks for all your answers and advice.
