Brake Pedal on vnb

I have a vnb vespa and cannot remove a steel pin on the footbrake so as to remove the brake pedal.
Has anyone experienced this before and know how to remove it?
Some have suggested drilling a hole ito the underside of the legsheild and knock the pin out with a hammer and punch.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Indeed the best thing to do is to dril it out and replace it afterwards,it is just a pin and you can always replace it later

Are you determined to keep it?

If it’s scabby and you would rather have a new/re-furb then Gordon Grinder will be your best mate.;D
