Hi all

Tried to remove the shaft securing the swingarm to the frame today, no joy, seems stuck solid. I have recently purchased the bike which was restored some years ago but not used since then, the swingarm has been re-chromed so I'm supprised the retaining shaft did not come out easily ?

Any thoughts and tips on removing the shaft will be most appreciated.

I had a Fantic 80 with a swingarm pivot shaft that would not come out.  I tried heat and anti rust solvents but in the end had to resort to a hydraulic press.  As I remember the pivot inner races had rusted to the shaft.  The rest of the bike was rust free.
