The Star Lite Motel and Best Western signs were located at the Full Throttle Saloon. The Star Lite Motel was located in Sturgis. I don't know where the Best Western sign came from. These signs were mass-produced but were phased out by Best Western. They are very rare now. Some of the crowns have been repurposed for other business signs around the country. In 2015, the Full Throttle Saloon was destroyed in a fire. I don't know if these signs survived.
