    Nice. Must be mid-late 80s? To my untrained eye that seatpost doesn't look like it will take much shifting, there definitely seems to be an air of oily greasiness about the bike so I would just service it to within an inch of its life and run it as is. :okay:

    Have you seen R J the bike guy release a stuck seat post with his "upside down" hammer thingy ? He almost had cardiac arrest but it worked :smile:

    ^^^^^He means a slide hammer. Could work for you if you can get hold of one, or even make one.
    Have a look at RJs other videos on removing seat posts.

    I couldn't understand why he didn't hang the frame securely upside down and employ the service of gravity on the slide hammer (thingy) !

    Tried something similar once and the top section came out long before the post moved

    He’s got his foot on the chainring, be easier with the tyres deflated.

    Sure if I was swinging a 10lb slide hammer about it the bike would not be as steady as that
