Nice pack job :p

Seriously, it sucks to have a nice bike damamged in shipping, but judging by the pic, it wasn't protected very well. When I ship stuff, I pack it like it's going to a combat zone....

What type of crown do you have on it? Let's see more of what you have and maybe someone has something. A few pics would help.

Looks like steel

if so, it can possibly be fixed, but if it is indeed AL, it's toast. AL doesn't bend without cracking, so bending it back just brakes its. Magnet will tell if it's steel or not.

So is the steerer too short to cut off the damaged part?

Sucks that happened, but the advice about over-packing is spot on. Even though this may come as a surprise, most UPS employees don't go out of their way to manhandle stuff, but a bike box goes through a lot on it's journey. Better to be over protective than sorry.

He took a Magnet to it and no luck it's AL , Can't cut it because it will be way short for the mc2 bar and stem to work,,

For over packing who would have thought UPS would F it up.. was told by many Fedex would have taking more care of it even the shop that sent the bike is going to use Fedex because they get a few bikes time to time F UP and they are sick of UPS as well.. UPS is like wal-mart to big to give a Crap .

I had someone fix something like that similar on my MC2 handle bars. They were able to bend it back without cracking, which isn't that hard, necessarily. They then used a lathe to make an aluminum piece that was pressed into tube. That way, the Al has reinforcment. I've been going strong for years with it.

Whether it would work on this application or not, I don't know but you might consult someone with metallurgical knowledge.
