Spent a good number of hours getting this one free. Ended up removing the bearing assembly and axle from the frame. Had to grind off one of the bolts that attached bearing assembley to the frame - the weld on the nut inside the drum broke and the bolt was captured.
Once I got the housing and axle free from the frame, I was able to tap on the drum through the two holes where the bearing housing attaches to the frame. Eventually got things free and didn't wreck anything in the process.
Turned out the bearings were seized and the shoes were rusted to the drum. A real basket case. But I got what I was after which was the rear axle and bearing housing. My plan is to use these parts as part of a custom build I'm working on. It's going to be a minature police trike based around a Honda Z50 frame. When done, I want it to resemble an old Harley Servi-Car circa 1940 and be a minature version.
Thanks for the help so far.
