They needed to build another Excelsior model because they couldn't use the original one, as it had the Ent-B parts permanently stuck to it.

Interestingly, during pre-production for Generations, the producers were going to have an all-new model built for the Ent-B, of a different class. If that would have happened, then the original model could have been used for "Flashback," and we might have seen more ships of the Ent-B's new class later in DS9. But that's not what happened.
Though ironically the reason for the extra bits on the Enterprise-B was to avoid cutting into the original model, so it could be damaged and subsequently restored to its original condition.

Obviously that didn't quite go to plan!
