Standard R90/6 Dual discs with a 13mm handlebar M/C will work quite well, the brakes then have both power and feel. Use the later R100 M/C for twin pull throttle cables and it's a very easy upgrade, even the 75 on electrical switches mount up correctly. Available from Motobins, but make sure that you specify 13mm.

The brakes are not as good as the Brembos on my 82, but they are nearly as good.

P.S. the single front disc on my 1972 Norton was almost as bad as the BMWs single disc, I do think that with the not that great tyres available back them manufactures were all wary of riders locking up these new dangled disc brakes
