I have now totally stripped the frame.

Just the drive side Bb plate remains which seems stuck fast.

For the avoidance of doubt this is a right hand thread?

Also, any tips for extraction?

if it's pinarello it's italian thread, so not reversed. anti-clockwise to unscrew it. if it's stuck fast and you can't get it out with a vice, then if it's only the cup you can probably cut it out (carefully, avoiding damage to the BB shell threads)

As above........if you are using a vice then it has to be in good condition, rounding of the jaws causes the fixed cup to jump out :)

Your local bike shop should have a BB tool like a large T-bar which clamps onto the fixed cup which is used by hand or in a vice or with a breaker bar ..
