A bloke down my street used to race MZ's, I think it was the cheapest way to go racing at the time.

On the Transalp I'd appreciate anybody's help with a problem:

The swing arm pivot bolt (and 1 of the linkage bolts) won't budge, I think the bolt is rusted to the bearing or something.
I got the nuts off easy enough and can rotate the bolts (though V.stiff).

I've tried putting the nut on and hitting it with a club hammer via a block of wood, and I also tried hitting the end of the bolt with the hammer via a socket extension.
They ring and won't budge at all.

There's no grease nipples on this one.

Any ideas?

Impact driver on the bolt should do the trick.

Get plenty wd or similar squirted on them.

Forget using the wood as a buffer, it'll absorb most of the impact force.

Get a bigger hammer and yer socket extension bar and give it some manley blows.

Evil, if yer get the bolt to budge, knock it back the opposite way and spray more wd on it.

Keep doing it either way rather than trying to bludgeon it straight oot.

Good luck with it.

If you can lay the bike on its side and support the area around the bolt head yer blows will have far more impact.

Sounds very much like its seized inside the bearing inner steel bush.  Had same issue wi my SLR650, absolutely solid.   The bolt will spin in the mount but just wont budge sideways.

Brute force is just part of the answer.

The other part is time and a wee bitty patience.  Keep soaking it with penetrant over a few days ( diesel works very good for this sort of problem as thin and will weep easily intae the smallest gap).   It will eventually seep thru.

Then as Aldo says ditch the timber as its dampenin yer blows, up yer hammer weight and go for good single sharp and hard strikes,  as in properly followed through blows, nae namby pamby taps.  Mibbe hold yer punch wi mole grips tae help get a better contact and dunt.

Thanks for your suggestions so far.
I've looked online and there are many similar tales of woe and covering a multitude of bikes.
The swing arm moves very freely, I am considering leaving it and just painting it in-situ.
I am deffo going to try and remove the other linkage bolt as that squeaks.
