Thank you

Swingarm removal

Hello, I'm at the stage of transferring the engine and swing-arm from my donor (Norge) to the Triking. Two things I'm stuck with 1. There is a bolt that attaches the bottom of the gearbox to the frame and it won't budge. I assume it goes all the way through and the nut of the other side is off. I've...
