WR450 VIN #location

I'm new here and couldn't figure out where to ask this question. I am about to powder coat a WR450 frame and had concerns about the VIN#. I haven't seen the frame yet but the owner tells me the number is on a sticker on the frame. I know that surely the number is stamped into the metal somewhere. Can anyone show me a pic of the VIN# on one of these bikes?
TIA,
Marc

The question was if someone could post a pic of the number area. I said I don't have the frame so telling me where to look is kind of useless help. I know that all motorcycle VIN#s are on the neck. If you can't understand the question, don't try and answer it.

I just received an email, notification of a reply to this thread from Dusty, but the rely is not here. But my response to it is: I appreciate your wanting to help but your answer was actually no help at all or the answer to the question I asked. It's like you ask me "what time did I have breakfast yesterday" and my answer was "it's a black SUV with 4 wheel drive and white wall tires" then I wasn't much help, was I?
I was able to find the answer elsewhere and have the frame in hand now and the number is stamped in the neck where all motorcycle numbers are stamped. I was more interested in not where the number was but what the number looked like. I have seen some that were stamped with little dots that are not very deep so care must be taken when blasting the frame numbers as not to alter them. These turned out to be deep stamped normal numbers.
