    Western Auto porcelain sign was found right here in Brownsburg. The sign is in great shape and displays well. The sign was made by the Veribrite-Sign Company out of Chicago. The sign is 15'6" x 28" and has three colors, red, white and blue. Got the sign Saturday morning and it was covered in mud. Got it home and got the hose out and washed it down. It really shines well after all these years. This sign hung on the store here in town back in the day. I remember going in and looking at bikes when I was 10 years old. I'm sixty so that was fifty years ago. Our parents bought me and my brother bikes from there. The bikes were Western Flyers. Another great sign found here in Indiana.

      Wow - I, too, even before reading your post, remember as a child, our local Western Auto store was THE place to go if you wanted to gaze and dream about a brand new bicycle!

      Michael,
      Nice sign and GREAT find!! I haven't heard the name Western Auto in many years. We used to get their ad in our local paper every week and bought a lot of camping and fishing items from them. And like you, our Western Flyer wagon came from there as well.
