Glad I stuck with it, the swingarm bearings are toast.

Kickstand prepped for corrosion repair. Cut the corroded foot off at lunchtime and now  ready to weld on a replacement foot I hammered out.

Frame is as cut as it's gonna get.

Any tips on getting the swingarm bearing race out of the cup?

Thats interesting.  You have done this?

I was gonna say fill the cup w dry ice.  (some blood donation banks sell it for like $5 a lb)  Then flip it over and hit the cup w torch flame.
It been a couple years since I last bought dry ice but Im thinking that was the going rate. 
Just get good gloves.  Dry ice is dangerously cold.  Ask me how I know.  ::)
