Well, that sucks but it's good that Beta is sending you a new frame anyways. It'll be a new bike by the time it's back together.

Pretty cool that they'll get you a new frame, particularly on a race bike.

Will they give a new frame number too (I know honda wouldn't do that ~20 year ago)?

I was thinking that with a new MSO but more likely it will have his current vin.

Yeah, honda provided a little plate with the old vin on it and the shop did something to the old frame to make it unusable (this is all from memory as I decided not to replace my dented but still straight frame).
