Stihl 090 hotsaw with NOS system
« on: November 18, 2015, 02:10:12 pm »
I answered a craigslist add for an AS member,  the seller is a 79 year old retired logger but when I walked in the door he had a Stihl 090 Hot saw on his bench.  It was my pleasure to meet Eugene Villeneuve.  I talked with him for about 2 hours. He started racing in the 60's and had a very good record in many of the bigger shows  he showed me trophys from boonville, he talked about racing at webster. He mentioned personal accounts with Marcel, Remy, chauncey. 

Anyway to the point this is his last race saw, said it is in good running shape.  He showed me how the NOS fogger worked and said the system cost 1000.

The saw has a direct drive, no clutch. fan is off the flywheel. it has external ports.
he also has some other jugs carbs pistons and parts that go with it. 

I offered to post it on some websites to help him out.  I asked for a price and the tossed out 3000 for a number.  I told I have no idea what the saws are worth so he is willing to entertain offers. 

Neat saw and an opportunity to help a plankowner to the timbersport community.

I found this jug even more interesting, looks a lot like a mvp jug.  ;) missing the head and the epoxy has a hole in it.  Porting is top notch.

I would like to help this guy,can you pm what he should ask and if you know anyone that may be interest or where I should advertise.

Eugene still looks like the strong large man I remember him from back in the '80s . I got a picture somewhere of him running that 090.

$3000 sounds a bit steep but veteran timber sport collectors who did well into their retirement may dish out the bills.

I let him know a lot of the top very competitive saws of today are around that mark.  I pushed him to give me some kind of number and told him that it may be high.  If anyone is interested I will put you in contact with him and you can talk money.  My goal was to give this gent more exposure than he would get locally. 

It would be neat to see in action. if it is a contingency of the sale, I can probably make an arrangement with him to demo it.  He is still a big man but I think better if I ran it for him.
