Aluminium (Apart from ALAN) is a bit after my time, just out of curiosity what bent bit makes the frame completely knackered ?

The issue is you can't bend it back without seriously compromising the integrity of the frame. So if the damage is relatively small, or does not affect performance, then the frame is probably fine just keep an eye on it in case it develops a crack. With this frame the rear spacing would need to be corrected and there is no cold setting aluminum.
