Unfortunately there is no easy way to get the bolt out. It is tight because it has rusted on the inside surfaces and you have to force these rusted surfaces through the opening on the frame. Lay the bike on its side and soak the bolt with penetrating oil. After letting it have a good soak you will just have to keep on driving it until it comes out.

Good luck !

if your going to sand the frame for a re-paint, you can feather all the scratches with 220 grit and then go over the whole frame with 320 to 400 wet/dry sand paper..apply a good etch or epoxy primer and then paint
