Maybe you could sit on the bike and swing ur hammer !
[QUOTE 5192510, member: 43827"]Got the seatpost and stem out without any damage. The seatpost was put in a strong vice with the bike upside down. I kept putting side to side rotating pressure on the frame while a friend stood on the bench and exerted upward pressure.
The stem came out by putting the fork in the vice, between two pieces of wood, and using flat bars for better leverage.
The frame is perfect and I don't know whether to have it powder coated or just rebuild it keeping the "patina" plus some upgraded parts. Less likely to be stolen that way.[/QUOTE]
Well done removing the stuck partsp
I prefer patina over fresh paint anytime
Definitely plan B to keep the old world charm but with everyday user friendliness.
