I saw a similar treatment years ago on a track bike owned by Al Toefield, of Kissena fame. Instead of a bunch of small holes it had one big hole. The bike was all chrome and had no fransfers.

This was over 20 years ago. The bike was on loan to a rider named Brian Keating who I still run into now and then. Next time I'll ask him if he knows more about that bike.
