My next Spannerama (number 43 Front forks and rear suspension) in N.C.R. should help you.
I would not trust a welded t/bar.

Even if welding a torsion bar did prove successful, you would need another similarly treated bar to make a pair, as the repairs would alter the spring characteristics of the bars.
