I can't get this last bolt out of the swing arm to remove the motor. Any ideas?

Lay the bike on its side and soak it in wd 40 Do not hammer it !!
Use a big brass punch and 2lb sledge hammer after you let some lubricant soak down in. It's common for this to happen. I use a mixture of grease and anti-seize on that bolt. Which I probably don't need to do if I grease it enough.....
Hacks hammer, mechanics or people that give a fkc press
If you hit the end of that bolt with a metal that is harder than the bolt, it will surely damage the threads. Using a softer metal will only damage the punch. A press is a good idea too if you have one. All I had was the brass punch and the 2lb sledge hammer. I used vice grips to hold the punch. A couple of knocks and it came right out.
I've always just threaded my nut back on flush with bolt gave one good swing then took nut back off and tapped it out lightly until I can grab other side of bolt with vise grips latch on and twist and pull lol
Unos pinches marrasos
After you get it out, get a new one
Yes, you will have to get a new one.. :)
