Wouldn't you WANT an older SS frame replaced with an SS/FE frame under warranty?
You need to have photos to compare, but the headstock is welded differently (at the crossmember) and the frame decal (the black one, separate from the emissions decal) is just a sticker on the SS/FE frame as opposed to being riveted onto the frame near the headstock on the older SS frames.
When you receive a new frame from Ducati they have your original serial numbers in place. There should be no change with the VIN. In the case of the 900SS frames we have seen replaced, Ducati supplies a 98 model year frame regardless of the year you are trying to replace

I think you're reading too much into my question. Sure, I'd prefer that it was already replaced but I still want to know how to positively identify it and I don't think the current owner will have a clue.
