Maybe drill into the bolt, then screw it out?

You need a special tool for that. I have one but only do it for people that I actually know for good reason. I got my kit at Canadian Tire. Perhaps you can get one from Amazon.

It requires a bolt extractor, often used by mechanics to remove broken head bolts. A small hole is drilled, and the threaded extractor pulls it out. It usually requires a drill press. Another way is a type of welder which zaps/burns out the bolt, then the hole is rethreaded and a larger bolt found. I would check with the Young brothers mechanic and machine shop, they are always up to a challenge.

I got enough motivation by the above to try again with a new drill bit and a LOT of muscle. The sucker came out at the drill bit end... 🙏. Thank you all for the help. Now to look for a replacement bolt and a few nuts... Titanium this time...

It's no big challenge and you can do it with a cordless drill if you get a broken screw/bolt extractor kit like this. Every home should have one. Try Amazon.

There is a fastener place that has just about everything on the  Libramiento same side as and near one of those schools.

If you are coming from Chapala, it is just after the Bomberos station. Turnillos the sign says.

Then you've gone too far. It is way east of the Bomberos.
