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 was just going through some old magazines and found this from 1986. Eugene Villeneuve swung a fast saw back in the day. Many more pics in other issues, I'll post as I find them.

Making a living with a saw since age 16.
