Purchased via Singletrack forum for a very reasonable price. The plan is to build up as a singlespeed to commute to work later this year when the company I work for relocates:

I've moved this from Kit to Chat where hopefully more people will look and offer advice.

clamp the brake mount in a vice, and use the frame as leverage

What mattbrown said about the vice. Can't think of any other way to get it out.

Looks more like an F6 to me though. F7s had brazed on disc mount AFAIK.

Whatever you do, apply loads of penetrating spray first, not just WD40. Trust me on this, I used to have a series 3 landy. Penetrating spray is ace :D .

WD40 isn't a penetrating fluid ....WD=water dispersant. Plus Gas is what you want

That's exactly what I said. WD40 is crap. Plusgas or penetrating spray will reduce the chance of twisting the frame :) .
