Pulled off front tire and fork stripped.. HELP!

Just picked up my 07 Mean Streak on monday and it needed a new tire. After fighting the axle out, I now know why.
Is this repairable?

No reddyford, only fork threads were messed up.

I'm sorryMN-rider, won't let me upload from my phone.

I was able to get a 24m x 1.5 tap and die and it torqued down to 79#.

Another question, should I use anti seize in axle? maintenance manual doesn't say to.

Might consider hosting the pics with Picasa, imageshack, photobucket, etc and just link to them.

I don't use anything but axle grease. I replace tires every other season, so seize up would never be in the equation. I use a 3/4" drive ratchet as long as my arm for the axles which makes loosening a piece of cake.

Generally speaking, I think it's best to follow the advice of the manual(s).

Using the wrong type or any lubricant where it's not really supposed to be changes the design properties of the joint/assembly.
