Ahh... but does the '05 body work fit straight onto an '04?

More importantly, can you buy the alloy tank (and fuel cap) off the Centennial and how much?

I got my '04 TE250 in late July '03. I won't be having an '05 but I don't think you will have to wait too much longer...

I just went to Husky usa web site and they don't have anything on the 05's. Anyone know the MSRP on the new TE450? What are the differences b/t TE/TC?
