I would surely soak it a few nights in PB blaster before messing with it. That stuff works wonders on freeing old bolts.

no problem at all Dave. PB blaster is my best friend ( well beer too ). If I buy an old bike, The first thing I do is spray it down with PB and leave it sit in a corner for a few days. Usually have no problems getting things apart without destroying them. That is a very cool frame and fork you have. Keep the pictures coming man  8) 8)
