Thank-you good Doctor. I am down with the flu and googling after Louise Brooks made me feel a lot better.

cut it off, get it reamed out, and put a new post in it.

beautiful looking frame. i am seduced by the lack of parts perhaps. it looks like it needs a build of low key black and silver parts that don't take the attention from the frame

Get to a frame builder, bring whatever passes in Finland for choccy Hobnobs*, spend the money and get that post out. WORTH IT!
