Stud hits speed bump, it will hit again, consider moving stud to alternative location.
Broke stud on kickstand: Remove kick stand, take to local welder. No problem, easy job.
Broke stud off frame: ouch, you could weld this on, it is tricky, remove oil, grease, paint, weld on stud while lying on back or on bike lift. Re-paint. Major pain.
consider drilling small hole, tapping and putting a screw with stop nut?
Just because its a holiday weekend, use a hose clame or zip tie to cinch the spring to the frame.
